Nuggets Mascot Passes Out While Being Lowered From Rafters
Nuggets Mascot “Rocky” passed out last night during their home game against the Blazers.
According to ABC7 News Denver,
The plan was for Rocky to be lowered in a harness, with a spotlight on him, just before the home opener.
Fans were horrified when a lifeless Rocky was lowered to the center court where he immediately collapsed. The spotlight was quickly turned off.
Rocky was checked by medical personnel before he walked off the court under his own power.
Word from the Nuggets was that Rocky had the wind knocked out of him and would be out for the remainder of the game.
The camera angle during the live broadcast made it appear Rocky was hanging by his neck, but the line went to a harness on his back that was hidden by the mascot’s large head.
This morning, Rocky tweeted out that he’s doing just fine and will be ready for the Nuggets next game against the Spurs.
