Posted January 14, 2011 1:27 p.m. CT


The Milwaukee Bucks’ beloved Bango has been nominated for the “Most Awesome Mascot” award for the first ever Cartoon Network “Hall of Game” Sports Award Show. The show, set to air in late February, will feature the year’s best athletes, highlights, tricks, and of course, mascots.

Last September Bango was named NBA Mascot of the Year for his efforts on and off the court. He’s wowed the crowds with stunts like a slam dunk off a 16-foot ladder at the Bradley Center during a Bucks playoff game, but he’s also wowed the community. Bango is involved in numerous charities, most notably those encouraging children to read.

Now Bango needs your help to win the title of “Most Awesome Mascot”. Voting is open now through February 20th on the Cartoon Network website. CLICK HERE to vote!
