The Milwaukee Bucks are ruthless.
The team has a ticket promotion going for fans to purchase a mini-pack, with the option to choose opponents based on their star players.
However, there's one club that doesn't have a representative ... at least not one that's human. In lieu of an elite basketball talent, the Chicago Bulls are represented by their mascot, Benny the Bull.
It's understandable from Milwaukee's standpoint, as the Bulls' roster does not currently feature a star talent. The team's committed to a rebuild after losing both Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade this past offseason.
In fairness to Chicago, Benny is a star. The fluffy red bull was recently named an inductee in the Mascot Hall of Fame's 2017 class.
