Wall-E.

No seriously, celebrities are...I've never seen one in LA, even the clips dun have one.

The thing is that in truth, I really did read/heard about this, celebrities being the 'mascots' in LA...that's practically it. >.<

Correct me if I'm dead wrong?

Ask yourself, what exactly is a Laker?

That's your answer.

What kind of mascot would we have anyway? The Lakers were originally from Minnesota where there are a lot of lakes, hence Lakers. A guy in a suit filled with water would be a little odd...

The Mercyhurst Lakers, a local college, always wondered what their mascot would be like. Two years ago, they got their answer... meet "Louie The Laker"

We're the Lakers. It is that simple.
"Why can't America realize that falling in love with Kobe doesn't mean breaking up with Michael?" Rick Reilly

Bryant, who will be representing Team USA for the first time, told Gasol: "Being that we lost this series, you (guys) have no chance at a gold medal. I ain't goin' 0 for 2, homie."

What would it be? It would be something that didn't make sense with the name therefore it's pointless. What's worse than a mascot is when teams have random mascots that have nothing to do with their team name or the city.

^ Yup and there's plenty more where that came from.

You know what would be sick is if we had a Jack Nicholson mascot, but like a cartoonish big head guy with that huge Jack smile on and sunglasses. :rock: :lol:

Aren't mascots just fans looking to entertain? So go ahead, step in and take it.
