We laughed when the Sixers unveiled their three hideous mascot choices in December. So much so, in fact, that we thought there was a slim possibility that the team would just scrap the whole thing and start from scratch– which it now seems may be the case.
A few weeks ago, a local notable outside the organization told me that the Sixers were quietly going back to the mythical mascot drawing board, an action that would explain why we’ve yet to see Phil E. Moose grazing courtside at The Well. Today, Adam Aron lent a bit more credibility to that speculation with a probably-not-so-accidental-Tweet hinting that the team might bring back Big Shot. BBBS, if you will:
Been a surprising ground swell for Big Shot. Do you want Big Shot back… Yes or No? RT @alex_ep what up with bigshot? U bringing him back?

Yes, we do.
Want Big Shot back? Perhaps that outcome requires just a few Tweets to (@SixersCEOAdam). Here– you can copy and paste this one: I SAY YES TO BIG SHOT #BBBS.
Do it, Philadelphia.
