“Rumble the Bison” could use a little more time in the gym, working on his wildly-dangerous dunking: “Lowered from the Ford Center ceiling like a rock star, Rumble the Bison, the Thunder’s new mascot, made a smashing debut Tuesday night despite missing both dunks.

Rumble stood on the top rung, then back-flipped. The dunk rimmed out, but his athleticism was evident.”
