Imagine dressing up in a giant reindeer costume, climbing up a 20-foot step ladder, then launching yourself into a flip straight downwards with aspirations of dunking a basketball on the way down. Personally, I would be scared out of my mind. Bango the mascot has pulled this type of thing off before, and he did so again Monday night at halftime of the Bucks’ win over the Hawks.
I would love to see an NBA player dress up in a costume for the dunk contest. Just picture Dwight Howard dressed up like Big Bird trying to dunk a 12-foot hoop–talk about bringing excitement back to the dunk contest.
