There's nothing funny about seeing highly paid athletes being scared out of their unsuspecting socks by an 8-foot inflatable mascot. Yea right, it's hilarious.Milwaukee Bucks mascot Bango went deep undercover at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on March 28, donning a larger, inflatable Bango costume and standing motionless against a wall as members of both the Bucks and Lakers passed by before the game. When the time was right, the Great White Bango struck, drawing a scared reaction from a few of the players and coaches.While Dwight Howard's 360-spin move, Marquis Daniels' curse and the Lakers equipment manager's scream were all fun to watch, nothing quite matched Kobe Bryant's non reaction.

Dwight Howard wasn’t the only player Bango, the Bucks inflatable mascot, tried to scare during the Lakers’ recent trip to Milwaukee. Bango gave his best shot at frightening Monta Ellis, J.J. Redick and a few other Bucks players before attempting to give it a go on the Black Mamba, which apparently can’t be done. The Lakers equipment manager was another story. The poor guy just...
Wow, marketing the Bucks…what a tough gig.
Welcome back Greg Stioulsma or whatever. “Remember him, that big white dork on the Badgers? No not him the other white dork.” Well guess what he’s coming to play YOUR MILWAUKEE BUCKS. Lord help us.

MILWAUKEE -- Ricky Rubio is a magician with the ball in his hands. That is already known.
A bit more covert has been his transition from a pass first, second and third point-guard to a viable scoring threat.
Just ask the Milwaukee Bucks.

Shaquille O'Neal was able to be his easygoing, entertaining self Tuesday night at halftime of the Lakers' win over the Mavericks. He hammed it with the crowd, telling jokes and going to his reliable schtick.
