Milwaukee Bucks’ Bango Continues to Laugh in the Face of Danger, Injury

April 27, 2010

After last year’s embarrassing incident during the NBA All-Star Game, where the Bucks’ mascot tore an ACL when he caught his leg falling through the rim, one might excuse Bango for dialing down some of the more dangerous antics used to please the crowd. Of course, we don’t even know if it’s the same guy in the costume, so perhaps those concerns don’t even enter into the equation.

Either way, same guy or not, the feats of mascot daredevilry have continued. During Game 4 of the Bucks-Hawks series Monday night, Bango pulled a reverse flip from the top step of a 16-foot-ladder into a dunk. And while there’s quite a bit of padding for him to land on, he also could have planted himself on the basket again, which would be most painful, even to someone inside a mascot costume. Thanks for the show Bango, but you take care out there. If you hurt yourself, who will go around Milwaukee randomly assaulting people in Al Horford jerseys?
