Best New Mascot: Philadelphia 76ers’ Franklin the Dog


While we await Sam Hinkie’s vision of a competitive 76ers team to materialize, they’ve already landed their mascot of the future. “Born” around Valentine’s Day 2015, Franklin is affable and more lovable than his predecessor, Hip-Hop. Best of all, the Sixers have stayed true to their “for kids, by kids” mascot formula for the next generation of fans.
