Remember two months ago, when Russell Westbrook trolled the entire Pepsi Center, when he denied them of free quesos by blocking Rocky’s half court shot, twice? Well, in his return to Denver, Rocky took precautionary measures to prevent the incident from a repeat. In order to remove Russell from the premises while Rocky takes his shot, the mascot barricaded half of the basketball court with security guards and children.
It didn’t go in but, this wasn’t the only antic Rocky pulled during the game. According to few media members present at the game, the mascot had a few more things planned for Russ.

Rocky the mascot is shooting halfcourt shots on a ladder to the far basket away from the Thunder to avoid Westbrook hijinx.

Rocky just became the coolest mascot ever, Benny the Bull is still the best though.
