While the Cleveland Cavaliers have world-class talent on their roster, it was someone of a different breed who may have made their most impressive play of the season so far.

Moondog, the Cavs mascot, has had his fair share of ailments over the years

This year, he missed two preseason games this season as a result of being "sick as a dog." A couple seasons ago, Moondog suffered a "black eye" after a play fight with David West of the Indiana Pacers.

But Moondog has risen above all that immense adversity to achieve this must-watch moment, hitting a shot that will make you marvel.
