You remember BrooklyKnight, don't you? He's the soulless robot from the future who loves Brooklyn Nets basketball. Apparently, his name was a play on the term "Brooklynite," which I'm not sure I would have realzed until ti was explained to me.
But none of that matters now, as BrooklyKnight is about to sent to the Deactivation Chamber.
Actual news: Nets have informed their mascot he will not return next season, may place Brooklyn Knight character on hiatus...or worse.

Knight will join Hip Hop the Bunny on the NBA mascot scrap heap, unless he becomes aware of the team's grim plans for his future and pulls off some sort of esca--
**KLAXONS BLARE, ALARMS GO OFF**
Well, he's not one of those robots that, upon going rogue, begins hunting his tormenters - who first kept him prisoner in Brooklyn and forced him to like basketball, then plotted to have him incinerated - and eliminating them systematically based on their individual worst fears?
What?! Oh my god, why is that in his programming?!
