Before you go ahead and comment on how bad the video quality is, let's just say one thing: someone actually caught this incident on camera. Smartphones FTW! Now, back to the story. During the player introductions of Wednesday's Pacers/Cavaliers game, "Moondog," the Cavs' mascot, engaged in a playful sparring session with Indiana's David West. However, things went a little too far when West connected with a punch that hit the eye of the dude under the costume. 

The unfortunate guy was eventually treated and released from a local hospital. West claims that the two were just "playing around." But from the looks of things, it seems like the Pacers forward was swinging for the fences. Time to get your binoculars on and tell us what y'all think?
