The Atlanta Hawks' Mascot Was "In Bad Shape" After Smashing His Beak On The Rim During A Dunk Stunt

Atlanta mascot Harry the Hawk Sky Hawk was feeling it in the beak after this stunt went wrong during last night's game against Utah. Reader James sent this in, noting that while the mascot appears to return to the floor to finish the routine, it's almost certainly a backup they keep for such circumstances, because after smashing his face on the rim:

There was no way that first hawk was making it back on the floor. He was in bad shape, had to be helped off the mat.


We hope whichever HarrySky got hurt is back on his feet—er, wings, or whatever—soon.
