Denver Nuggets mascot Rocky the Mountain Lion”s motionless body was lowered from the Pepsi Center ceiling last night before their home opener … but the big mystery is why.
The plan called for Rocky to be lowered from the rafters with a spotlight on him … but when his decent to the floor began — Rocky didn”t move a muscle … and instantly collapsed when he touched the ground.
According to reports … the guy in the suit was checked out right after and walked off the court on his own, but so far … the team has been hush-hush on what happened.
Good news — the team should have Rocky back for their next game.
Bad news — the team got their asses kicked by the Blazers.
