Boomer is the official mascot of the Indiana Pacers, a professional basketball team that plays in the National Basketball Association (NBA). They appear at each of the Pacers' home games as well as special events for the NBA.
Boomer was introduced before the start of the 1991 NBA season. Boomer is a 6 ft (1.8 m) tall energetic cat that performs high flying dunks and dance moves. He wears a #00 Pacers jersey and is one of the more accomplished NBA mascots, being selected for several NBA All-Star Games.
Bowser was a former mascot who worked in tandem with Boomer. The duo was broken up when Bowser was retired during the 2009-2010 season, after 8 years in the business.
