One problem was that Rocky was noticeably limp while being lowered from the rafters and then laid out on center court in front of the stunned fans. It looked more like an old-style Western lynching than a glorious entrance.
Poor Rocky was apparently unconscious during the whole thing.
After the eerie entrance, the Nuggets said the person inside the getup wasn't injured and would be fine.
