Hip Hop (mascot)
Hip Hop was the mascot of the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team. A rabbit character, Hip Hop usually entertained Sixers fans during halftime and time-outs by performing acrobatic slam dunks from a trampoline, often over an item or person, such as a motorcycle, a Sixer Dancer, a fan, or a ladder.
Hip Hop also appeared at various Sixers publicity events and fundraisers. He had a sidekick named Lil Hip-Hop. He also had helpers named the Hare Raisers, who helped him out at every home game.
It was revealed Hip-Hop would not be returning post lockout under new Sixers ownership. The decision was unanimous from the new owners.
