Brooklyn Nets retire Brooklyn Knight, says Zach Lowe

Brooklyn Nets

Seemed like a good idea at the time. In 2012, the Nets contracted with Marvel Comics to create a superhero mascot for the new Brooklyn Nets .. the BrooklyKnight.  The mascot made a dramatic entrance from the ceiling to the court on Opening Night and Marvel even produced a comic book that featured him and Nets players.

Then, the complaints began. He was too scary for kids, too tacky for adults. Now, reports Zach Lowe of Grantland, the experiment has ended.  The Nets will retire BrooklyKnight...

A team official confirms the worst about BrooklyKnight.: "Had to face reality that he didn't work out."  There are no plans to find a new mascot. Maybe, they could give the Knight  permission to talk with Milwaukee.
