The Brooklyn Nets will not have a mascot next season, after making the decision to ditch Brooklyn Knight earlier this year.

The Brooklyn Game reports that team officials had originally hoped to retool the much-maligned character or perhaps even bring in a brand new mascot. Instead, the team has decided to bravely enter the 2014-15 season with no mascot in place.

NBA pundits have yet to weigh in on how the decision will help the team's championship aspirations, but young Nets fans are surely rejoicing that they can go to the game without fear of being forced to pose with a creepy mascot.
