In game entertainment at NBA games has a formula that is fairly similar arena to arena — half-court shot by a fan, a virtual race of some kind on the scoreboard, of course the team dancers, and so on.
Cleveland broke the mold Sunday with a good one: life-sized Hungry Hungry Hippos. Not with a real hippopotamus, obviously, those are only on the Jungle Boat ride at Disneyland.
It’s a little rough around the edges, but I like it. Beats another virtual race anyday.
