Why is the Phoenix Suns mascot a gorilla?

Youppi is living in the basement of RFK, Phantom of the Opera style. :-)

It's obvious that the first three got in because of who they know.

If it was on stats and skill alone Youppi would be in for sure.

The whole process is way too political.

Lol! :-b

The San Diego chicken probably didn't get in sooner since Pete Rose dressed up as him one time. Then again, Kane did tombstone his sorry tail. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
