I think it’s safe to say that a game has never before been delayed because the court was on fire, but I could be wrong. The Hornets were said to have only done this stunt once this year, and why they did it between the first and second quarters was beyond me.
Anyway, here are a couple of vids of TNT giving Hugo the business. Barkley calls out the mascot in the first video and Craig Sager interviews him in the second.
I don’t think a mascot has ever had more airtime during a game. Great job by Craig Sager on the interview. This ranks up there with the Hank Aaron one.
