#9 Recycle Bin Redux: Clown Edition

Perpetrator: The Gorilla
Victim: Suns players

The year prior to the Gorilla jumping out of a recycle bin to scare Suns players, the league’s most shiesty mascot was up to his same Halloween tricks. This year, he…well…he jumped out a recycle bin and scared players.

But this time, he did it wearing a clown suit, so I guess that makes it completely different.

Most of the players acted like a gorilla dressed like a clown jumping out a recycle bin with an air horn was the most normal thing they had seen all day. Practically all of them barely flinched.

Then there was PJ Tucker and Michael Beasley. Those two’s reactions may have made the prank worth it when they jumped out of their skin before high-fiving the Gorilla for getting them good.

Points were deducted for simplicity here, but it made for a slightly amusing few minutes of video so it made the list.
