Greg Monroe lost his contact, turned into Mad-Eye Moosie

New, comments

Greg Monroe has a knack for keeping his eye on the ball.

Greg Monroe had himself an eye-opening game on Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns.

Monroe had his eye contact lens dislodged after he picked the pocket of Alex Len with under a minute to play in helping the Pistons come back from eight down. Len bumped Monroe in the eye going for the loose ball. Luckily, Moose was immediately able to locate his right eye's vision sticking to the hardwood floor:

This is when Moose transformed from animal to monster thanks to the Fox Sports Detroit cameras:

MF (which stands for Moose Fan) Garrett Elliott came up with the best new name for Moose:

Mad-Eye Moosie finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Makes me almost miss B-eye-num.

UPDATE: From last year!

Now your eye puns.
