  • Who is this man?

A man is suing the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it's not because they are going to suck.

The suit, filed in Cuyahoga County Court, seeks to ascertain the identity of Moondog, the Cavaliers' mascot.


Does this guy want a date? Does he like Moondog's physique? Is he curious what workout regimen the athletic mascot is on? Does he think Moondog slept with his mom?


He wants to find out Moondog's identity because he claims Moondog injured him during a game at The Q last year.

Via Courthouse News:

A man sued the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Quicken Loans Arena to discover the identity of the NBA team's mascot, Moondog, who allegedly struck his arm to make him drop a sign, rupturing a tendon in the process, in Cuyahoga County Court.

Rupturing a tendon? I knew Moondog was strong, but wow.

Pro Basketball Talk has the best joke regarding the suit: "The Cavaliers legal response to this suit was written in Comic Sans."
