Not to turn this Blog into Bango Don't Lie, but when a costumed deer does a backflip dunk from a ladder 10-feet above the rim, you've got to show him some love. That's been my life's mantra since I was a wee lad and I'm not going to change it now. (Note: Don't try this at home)
This man-deer is awesome to me. Not only is that stunt cramazing (crazy + amazing), it's even better when you consider that a little more than a year ago, he tore his ACL performing a stunt on the rim. If I'm in that costume, there's no way I'm getting anywhere near a basketball hoop with my furry deer legs again. But I guess that's why I'm not Bango.
In fact, no one is Bango, except Bango. He's the LeBron James of NBA mascots. That's how far ahead of his peers he is. It's his world and we're all just watching him dunk in it.
