#7 The Gigantic Dinosaur Scare

Perpetrator: Goran Dragic
Victim: Suns players

To be frank, I consider “the jump scare” one of the lowest forms of pranks out there. I mean, they can be good, and I often laugh, but it is the same way I laugh at slapstick humor. Then again, Mr. Bean is popular for a reason, so I know I’m in the minority in this category.

Of all the recent scare-related pranks orchestrated by the Phoenix Suns in recent history, the one that is the best has to be the gigantic dinosaur one from 2014.

Goran Dragic with his new companion, Baby T (a dude in a huge T-rex costume) at his side, waited in the tunnel for his unsuspecting teammates to emerge only to unleash the prehistoric predator at the right moment.

Well, most of them were unsuspecting. Gerald Green, who nearly knocked the Gorilla out for his recycle bin scare the year prior, walked into the arena pronouncing, “It’s Halloween, I know you all are about to do something,” and then just kept walking when he the might Baby T jumped out from behind the curtain. “I knew it!”
