Editor's note: It's okay to laugh at the following video, THGers.
No mascots were harmed during the making of it.
But fans in attendance at Friday night's home opener for the Denver Nuggets were certainly confused when the team's mascot was lowered to the court immediately prior to tip-off against the Portland Trail Blazers…
... only to go limp on his way down because, according to later reports, the man inside passed out from dizziness.
Adding insult to the mascot's injury, the Nuggets went on to lose 113-98.
