The petty is strong with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The team is using a ticket promotion to savagely troll the hapless Chicago Bulls.

On the team’s website, fans can purchase a five-game mini-pack by choosing a “starting five” of players from across the league.

Every NBA team has a star player pictured … except … for … one. As first noticed by Reddit user swapmeetpete, the 2-7 Bulls are represented by their mascot, Benny the Bull.


To be fair, after Jimmy Butler was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves and Dwyane Wade moved on to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago is currently suffering from a lack of superstar talent as it looks to rebuild. Who are the Bucks supposed to put on their promotion?

And it’s not like Benny the Bull isn’t a certified superstar in his own right. He’s even headed to the Mascot Hall of Fame.

Benny seems to have taken things in stride, using the opportunity to take a shot of his own at Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball.
