(spoiler alert: Side with the deer.)
What you’re about to witness is the epic confrontation between Dwight Howard and “Bango,” the inflatable equivalent of the Milwaukee Bucks mascot, filled by a man who is willing to stand in the hallway of the BMO Harris Bradley Center and pretend to be an immobile roadside balloon statue (or whatever) until Dwight Howard walks by. If you can’t tell them apart, Dwight Howard is the one that dresses like Minkus from ‘Boy Meets World,’ assuming Minkus was 11 feet tall.
Okay, so maybe “epic” is the wrong word, but it’s always nice to see anthropomorphic inflatables getting the psychological edge on a
popular basketball star. Video is after the jump.
The post-game analysis, courtesy of It’s Always Sunny In Detroit:
He tallied 15 points and 15 boards, but only went three or ten from the foul line as the Bucks dropped the Lakers 113-103. Bango was credited for one assist.
You read that, everybody in the NBA. Position your mascots in strategic terror locations whenever the Lakers are in town. It’ll help.
