Bango the Buck denies practicing dunk blowing up the Internet

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Internet sensation Bango the Buck and Allen Iverson see eye-to-eye on practice.

The mascot for the Milwaukee Bucks is enjoying YouTube celebrity after his ridiculous dunk during Game 4 of his favorite team's playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks. Even more impressive is the claim that he didn't practice the backflip off a 16-foot ladder beforehand.

"Practice? I would love to tell you that I put hours of practice in but I had to keep this one quiet so that I wasn't told not to do it. I did spend countless hours preparing mentally."

Did you have any worries, given your knee injury last year?

"Obviously I was concerned but I am sure my doctor was even more concerned."
Bango's talking about practice. Practice.

If you can't believe a man dressed up in a deer costume, who can you believe?

Bango also said he had more tricks up his sleeve to thrill the Bradley Center crowd, although anything more extreme seems just too dangerous.
