08:50 AM ET 11.02 | The official mascot of the Denver Nuggets caused quite a scare before the game started at the Pepsi Center Friday night. The plan was for Rocky to be lowered in a harness, with a spotlight on him, just before the home opener. Fans were horrified when a lifeless Rocky was lowered to the center court where he immediately collapsed. The spotlight was quickly turned off. Rocky was checked by doctors and taken off the court. Word from the Nuggets was that Rocky had the wind knocked out of him and would be out for the remainder of the game.

It's just 2 games, but the team on the floor looks horrible.

Why is Steve Nash even playing? He provides little offense and is a sieve on defense.

Mascots are for non-sports fans.

Hanging people up in the rafters with the lights off is always a great idea. SMH

Owen Hart does not think this is a good idea either.

I thought Faried was hurt from preseason and he's coming off the bench for the first few games.
