Video: Indiana Pacers Mascot Shatters High School Backboard

By Riley Schmitt

It’s all fun and games until someone has to replace an insanely expensive backboard.  At a New Palestine-Triton Central basketball game Friday night, the stakes were high.  They were so high that Boomer, the mascot of the Indiana Pacers, made an appearance.  In an attempt to stir the crowd into a frenzy, Boomer went for his trampoline dunk.  He brought the house down and also the backboard.

I can’t imagine the Pacers are very happy that they have to buy a new backboard for this high school.  They aren’t exactly cheap.   Something tells me Boomer is going to get a stern talking to after this.

Thanks to CBS Sports for the video.
