And nobody is having more fun at the five-time Grammy Award-winning artist’s*expense than the NBA.
It took less than 24 hours for the Indiana Pacers to launch a “lip sync cam” set to Carey’s “Emotions,” with fans at Bankers Life Fieldhouse trying to sing*along to the song, just as*the rangy pop queen did.

And during San Antonio’s first home game back at AT&T Center, Spurs mascot “The Coyote” did the Pacers one better, dressing in the same*sparkly leotard Carey sported on New Year’s Eve and lip syncing along to “Emotions,” as the team’s cheerleaders danced in the background, only to have the microphone go out and storm off the court. It was as painfully awkward as the original faux pas.
