76er Goes Down With Knee Injury

by Robbie Gillies

Fox29 in Philadelphia is reporting that 76ers mascot, Hip-Hop is out with a knee injury.

The team said its popular and entertaining mascot suffered a knee injury while attempting one of his sky-walking dunks for a group of children. Hip-Hop is beginning an extensive rehabilitation program, effective immediately.

I know it's harsh, but the 76ers should think about cutting Hip-Hop. The mascot has been a solid contributor for 10 years, but I can't help but think he'll be injury-plagued for the rest of his career. If they cut him now they will have the cap room to go after another mascot. I know one that's available...
