Raptors’ mascot suffers season-ending torn Achilles injury (VIDEO)
Season-ending injuries aren’t just for players, apparently.
The Raptor, mascot for Toronto’s NBA team, suffered a torn Achilles injury at a community event that is expected to sideline him for the entire year.
In a display reminiscent of the free throws Kobe Bryant made after suffering a similar injury, The Raptor finished his routine and high-fived a kid before limping offstage.
It doesn’t matter how you may feel about mascots in general -- this one’s a national hero, and no one can tell me otherwise.
