I liked the San Antonio mascot's outburst personally... Not quite comprehensive tho... Last year in the Semi-Finals at the FIBA WC's the Tournament Mascot - one Bad Batz Maru - got a bit of a shove and a stare from Carmelo (in his defence - team USA were having a bad day) when he danced right into 'Melo's path as he was going to the bench for a TO in the final quarter of the game... Not on the game telecast unfortunately...

A few seasons ago I remember watching footage of a College Mascot (dressed in a tree outfit) being ejected for being a nuisance while drunk. The caption on the bottom of the screen read something like The Tree - Ejected. Funny stuff. I've been trying to find it on youtube without any luck. If someone does find it somewhere can they please post the footage. My home team (Sudan Supersonics) has a coconut as the mascot. His name is Con the Coconut, he's only new and doesn't compare to the likes of the late Murray Magpie.
