With the 2014-15 NBA season upon us, let’s get going on some basketball posts, and let’s start with two fun, colorful ones. Sure it’s not our usual statistical hashing, but mascot posts are pretty popular. So, give the people what they want.

And it’s something to know, too.

Out of 30 teams, only six do not have a mascot (not including Jack Nicholson and Spike Lee, ha).

Let’s go alphabetical. Today, it’s the mascots of the Atlanta Hawks through the Memphis Grizzlies. Tomorrow, it’s the Miami Heat to the Washington Wizards.
