Devin Booker has Raptor mascot moved so he can shoot free throws in peace

The Raptor was doing his job — and the jobs of 20,000 others.

On the orders of the Canadian regional government, there are no fans in the Scotiabank Arena right now for Raptors games. Flip on a Raptors’ home game and it’s a little jarring to see all the empty seats.

But The Raptor — Toronto’s mascot — is there. As Devin Booker toed the line for two critical fourth-quarter free throws, The Raptor was jumping around, trying to make noise and be a distraction. Just like the 19,800 fans who normally would have been at the game would have done. After hitting the first free throw, Booker asked the referee to tell the mascot to move, and the ref obliged.


Remember fans, Booker would like it golf putt quiet when he takes his free throws, if you wouldn’t mind.

It’s not like he’s played in full arenas all season. Or played his college ball at Kentucky in packed houses. He needs his quiet.

Booker was asked about it after the game.


The free throws mattered and the Suns got the 99-95 win.

That's ridiculous. He made the free throw too, didn't he? I don't get why he was allowed to get the mascot to be moved.

Pacers bring in their own dinosaur to try and distract Booker (VIDEO)

In Toronto, The Raptor mascot was trying to distract Devin Booker during a free throw and the Suns’ guard asked the referee to have it move. The referee obliged, for some reason, and The Raptor was banished.

The Suns moved on to Indianapolis to face the Pacers, and Indy decided to bring in its own dinosaur to be a distraction.

Well played, Pacers.

I mean, the dinosaur was well played, the fourth quarter, not so much. The Suns pulled away in the final frame for a 112-94 win.

I hope he gets fined for this and trolled by all the mascots the rest of the season. This is part of the game.

Guy supposedly idolizes Kobe, who nailed freethrows with 1 achilles tendon, people shouting "rapist", etc.

Puss.
