76ers Place Hip-Hop on Injured Reserve: Popular Mascot to Begin Rehabilitation Effective Immediately
Young Fans encouraged to Send Cards and Get Well Wishes for a Speedy Recovery

The Philadelphia 76ers today placed their mascot Hip-Hop on the injured reserve list after the popular and entertaining mascot suffered an injury to his knee while attempting one of his sky-walking dunks for a group of children.

Effective immediately, Hip-Hop is beginning an extensive rehabilitation program.

"We expect Hip-Hop to make a full recovery," said Senior Vice President of Business Operations Lara Price. "We know how badly he wants to return and we know how much his fans are looking forward to him getting back on the court to perform the dunks that made him famous."

Hip-Hop, a 10-year veteran, has only missed one game since joining the club after attending college at John "Hop" Kins University. The only time he was forced to miss action was due to birth of his first bunny, during Game Five of the 2001 NBA Finals.

Hip-Hop is determined to return to form in time for the start of the regular season. The Sixers have created a dedicated space at SIXERS.COM where fans can monitor his progress every "hop" of the way.

Young fans are encouraged to send "Get Well" cards which can be mailed to:

Hip-Hop's Health Watch
C/o Philadelphia 76ers
The Wachovia Center
3601 S. Broad Street
Philadelphia, PA, 19148

For more information on the Philadelphia 76ers, please visit the teamís official web site, SIXERS.COM.

hip hop is the worst mascott in professional sports.

seriously? a bunny rabbit? why is the sixers mascot a bunny rabbit?????

we could do better than that....how about a ben franklin guy running around dunking off trampolines, and eating cheesesteaks. that would be way better than a stupid bunny.

i hope hip hop never comes back.

Do you not understand it?

Hip Hop refers to rap.. Philly is a big city for rap. Hip Hop is like a rabbit. Rabbit's hop up and down....It's sort of a play on words type thing.

Wow. Can you stop like repeating how much you hate Hip-Hop in like 5 identical posts?

It's okay if you dont like him, but if gets repetitive.

it just doesnt make any sense to have a bunny rabbit be our mascot.

philly can do better than that....philly deserves better than that.

Waht do you want them to do? A liberty bell? Dude. A jumping rabbit that does tricks in the air with a ball beats a person (Franklin?) cheering, or a object (Liberty Bell).

BChydro86
08-08-2008, 05:31 PM
nah....id rather ben franklin do all the same things hip-hop does...i think it would be original and hilarious. id have franklin eating cheesesteaks on the sidelines too....thatd be great.

the bunny just doesnt make sense.

Shieldsz
08-08-2008, 06:12 PM
Many would find having Ben Franklin running around eating a cheesesteak disrespectful. Maybe thats just me...


If anything it should be a guy dressed up in the document of the Declaration of Independence.. or we could have a mascot that really represents Phily.. just have some dude dress up as a gun and a bag of weed

Sixers would be the most unpopular team if we had Ben Franklin as a mascot. That would be sad and weak.

Well we can replace Hip Hop with the Philly Phanatic until he recovers from his injury. Put the phanactic in a Sixers uni

Sad? You're basically digging in deep because you have no other ideas..

Weak? It's freaking the 18th century Ben Franklin mascoting for a 21st century NBA team.

08-10-2008, 10:24 AM
i think it would be funny. it would make more sense than that dumb *** rabbit.

how about a giant cheesesteak mascot? our mascot could also be a bunch of really fat guys running around everywhere. that would be funny. and the crowd would get into it.

Shieldsz
08-10-2008, 10:29 AM
that would look extremely lame

BChydro86

almost as lame as a bunny rabbit?

i agree that its lame that we have a bunny rabbit as a mascot, but there are worse mascots (ever see the wizards mascot?). But I digress, hip hop would make sense if the sixers had a more hip hop like name (the beats?), however our team name is based of 1776, the year the US declared independence. Maybe a patriot would make more sense?

HipSlappyJoe
08-10-2008, 12:25 PM
or a giant liberty bell?

How is hiphop a dumbass?

nothin but net
08-10-2008, 08:11 PM
i dont exactly understand the article. is the human inside the mascot hurt becuase he was doing a dunk, or is this some kind of PR stunt? if the dude got hurt, cant we just find another person to get in the costume?

txravis12
08-10-2008, 09:12 PM
please edit your thing we have kids looking at this and if they see the word costume theyll freak please either delete that or edit that... and no because thats another person we have to pay

thats not true dude think about it.. kids think the santas lap they sit on every year is actually santa claus.. its deffinetly a possibilty for a kid to think that hip-hop is a giant guy rabbit or even the easter bunny!!!! lol but like i said it is a possibilty thats why i said something.. if i had a kid and they stopped believing in something because of an internet post id be pissed

Hip-hop also injured himself in 2000-2001, by breaking his leg. That was when I thought Hip-Hop and Pat Croce were the same person, because Croce too broke his leg. Then I realized Hip-hop was a giant douche and could never be as awesome as Croce. Stupid rabbit did it again...
