Bango the deer captured the hearts of the NBA community last season with his death-defying antics and talent for terrorizing people in Al Horford jerseys. Now his greatness has been officially recognized.

According the Twitter account of the Milwaukee Bucks, Bango has been voted the mascot of the year by his fellow mascots. Well done, Bango. You certainly deserved it.

Neither did I, but I do remember hearing or reading about Boomer being one of the best mascots in pro sports.

I guess this makes up for tearing his ACL last season lmao.

I'm glad they've done away with Bowser. Never like the dual mascots. The Boomer act is awesome. Does a good job of visiting different parts of the stands during games to meet kids, and that Dunk Show is always a treat.

Didn't Bango do the dunk off of the 20 foot ladder. That was insane, and enough to be crowned mascot of the year, I guess. He was lucky he didn't die doing that.
