On the one hand, one cannot exclude the possibility that Jazz rookie Dante Exum is being framed by his teammates. After all, that teddy bear is ridiculously large (and has a bow!) and it doesn’t seem to be THAT old either. Exum is also a rookie, so this could be a harmless (but oh so adorable) prank set up by his teammates.
On the other hand, that bear is being hugged rather snugly by Dante in Rodney Hood’s photo. Also, the bear is so big that it would have been extremely hard to squeeze it into Dante’s embrace without him knowing, right?
