NBA Rookie Hazing: The 2012-13 Edition [PHOTOS]
Want to see grown men wearing Dora the Explorer backpacks? Look no further than this years class of the NBA rookies. It’s been relatively calm on the hazing front in the young 2012-13 season, but things seem to be picking up a little bit. No, these aren’t game changing pranks like we saw back in September with MarShon Brooks and his popcorn car, but they are still pretty damn funny.
Call us immature, but we think its funny seeing seven-footers waking around in Justin Bieber back packs or pushing pink strollers. Just over a month into the season we figured it would be a good time to revisit all the shenanigans that these NBA guys are up to.
The Cavaliers have been picking up some steam, with Kevin Jones, Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller being spotted recently with pink backpacks and strollers. In a unique twist, the rookies are being hazed by coach Byron Scott who handed out the feminine items. Said rookie Kevin Jones:
Apparently you’ve got to carry milk and Pampers in this little pink bag. You’ve got to make sure it’s always full with that (stuff) and bring it in and out of the arena with you and you get in trouble if you don’t have it with you.
Ease up Coach Scott. Playing in Cleveland should be punishment enough for these guys.
