The furry-green creature, which rose to prominence by assisting 2016 Slam Dunk contest runner-up Aaron Gordon with his gravity defying throw-downs during the competition, is the 10th NBA mascot to win the award.


Previous winners include the Bulls’ Benny the Bull, The San Antonio Spurs’ google-eyed Coyote and two-time winner Clutch the Bear of the Houston Rockets.
