Robin Lopez gets into 'fight' with Pistons mascot, steals wig (Video)

Portland Trail Blazers big man Robin Lopez is known for his hair more than his game.

That’s not really a good thing, though, it did give the Detroit Pistons mascot some ammunition to mock Lopez during a recent game between the two teams.

Complete with a ratty wig, the Pistons mascot was seen mimicking Lopez during pre-game shootaround. Lopez wasn’t feeling it, so he and the mascot got into a playful fight which ended with Lopez snatching the mocking wig off the mascots head.

The Blazers center tossed the wig on the ground in victory, before picking it up and placing it on his own head – letting the mascot know that nobody can rock the curly ‘fro like he can.

The best part might not even been the actual ‘fight’ but rather the trainers and players warming up on the floor not exactly sure what was going on at first.

Lopez eventually gave the wig back to the Pistons pre-game crew with everybody getting a good laugh out of the situation.
