A green Red Claw?

.

Ten years ago Maine debuted its first NBA G league basketball team.

.

.

And naturally its mascot was a lobster. The lobster art has morphed over the years…

.

.

But it has remained a red cooked lobster. Hence the name… ‘Red Claws’.

Mainers. We’re so clever, it hurts.

.

.

Okay, so sometimes the mascot looks more like a demonic ant….

.

.

A demonic ant on steroids.

.

.

But ya gotta admit, the dude’s got game.

Everything was going well, and in the ten years since it’s inception… the team has won three division titles. But in 2019?

.

.

The Boston Celtics bought our team. And this year?

.

.

They not only renamed our team the Maine Celtics….

.

.

They turned our red lobster green!

The Green Claws?

That’s just wrong. In so many ways.
