Enquiring minds want to know: Was a full-on brawl last Friday between the notoriously pesky Jazz Bear and a passionately misguided Cleveland Cavaliers fan legitimate or staged?
The heated, life-like altercation took place midway through Utah's 121-99 trouncing of the downtrodden Cavaliers. And the melee — which involved two Jazz-leaning security guards, and saw the very hairy bear top off his performance with a "Karate Kid"-style flourish — has drawn more than a few eyes and questioning, "Wait, was that actually real?" glances on the fool-proof internet.
So, was it real?
"Fake," a Jazz spokesman said Tuesday.
Oh, that crazy bear!
