San Antonio Spurs Coyote once again named NBA Mascot of the Year

San Antonio's Spurs Coyote has again earned accolades from his peers.

On Monday, the Coyote tweeted photos posing with a shiny trophy, having been named the 2020 NBA Mascot of the Year. He previously won that distinction in 2014.

According to MySA, the award winner is determined by a vote among the 26 NBA mascots. Apparently, the Coyote isn't just beloved by his fans, but also his colleagues.

Though our mascot's on-court hijinks are certainly sorely missed, we won't be seeing him in person for a while yet.

Due to rising coronavirus cases in San Antonio, Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff requested that the Spurs put the kibosh on plans to bring fans back to the AT&T Center this week. The team announced Monday that it will continue to play in an empty arena.
