Most NBA rookies end up having to carry frilly backpacks or sing goofy songs when their veterans haze them during the regular season. You know, the usual stuff.

When the defending champions poke fun at their young guys, things can get a little strange — such as Kay Felder dressing up as "The World's Tallest Oompa Loompa" on Richard Jefferson's Snapchat shortly before a game against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night:

Sure. Sure.
