Many fans watching the game noticed it and others certainly did once the video hit Twitter, but did any Wizards players actually see when the Suns' gorilla mascot slid onto the court during a play to pick up something that had rolled onto the floor?

Bojan Bogdanovic, for one, did. Afterwards he was asked about the incident and admitted it was startling:

"That’s probably going to be on Shaqtin’ a Fool. He scared me a little bit. I thought it was a ballboy," he said.

Bogdanovic then figured out what was going on and continued with the play.

"I realized it was the mascot or whatever he is, but I thought at first in the moment it was a ballboy," he said.

What a bizarre thing to happen in an NBA game. Watch the replay right here:
