It’s unclear exactly what’s happening here, but it appears that the Nets players have a true disdain for Hooper, the mascot of the Detroit Pistons.
Brooklyn’s players seemed to jump the mascot before the Nets faced the Pistons on Friday, and pretended to beat him down during pregame warmups.
There’s something going on with the Nets and the mascots of their opponents. The team engaged in a similar altercation with Benny the Bull before Game 4 of last season’s playoff matchup with Chicago.
