Denver Nuggets mascot, is the highest-paid mascot in the NBA. Making $625K per year. If you wanted to have Rocky come to a birthday party, it would cost you $400 for a 30-minute visit or $750 for an hour

Mascots are responsible for entertaining fans during NBA games, frequently weaving among the crowd at the stands, also taking the stage during the halftime show. (Read More Here).

Denver Nuggets mascot, Rocky the Mountain Lion, is earning as much as 625,000 dollars a year, being the highest-paid mascot in the league for the time being. According to the NBA franchise's official website, a one-hour visit from Rocky costs 750 dollars, while a 30-minute visit for a birthday party could cost 400 dollars.

Season ticket holders can meet Rocky during games for 135 dollars, while non-pass holders would have to spend 135 dollars to get some time with the Denver mascot.

Rocky sits top of the list followed by the Atlanta Hawks mascot, as Harry the Hawk earns 600,000 dollars a year. Third comes the legendary Chicago Bulls mascot, Benny the Bull, who makes 400,000 dollars.

Next in the list is the Phoenix Suns' mascot Go the Gorilla, who earns just one third of what the Hawks' mascot makes every year.

Meanwhile, fifth-placed Hugo the Hornet earns 100,000 dollars from the Charlotte Hornets. To put it into context, the minimum salary of an NBA player is less than double what the highest-paid mascot makes (1,017,781 dollars).

And, if you've seen the big man in action, it's easy to see why.

Not only is Rocky a master at keeping the crowds inside Denver's Ball Arena hyped up, but his death-defying stunts are nothing short of insane.

From balancing on ladders at break-neck heights to effortlessly landing multiple backflips and sinking halfcourt shots, Rocky is at the centre of the Nuggets' entertainment and spectators absolutely love him.

Rocky first debuted in 1990 when the Nuggets were at an all-time low and were struggling to sell tickets at home games. Ken Soloman is the only known person to portray the character. Other top five highest-paid mascots include Harry the Hawk at $600,000 USD and Benny The Bull at $400,000 USD. The top performer recognized for the 2021-2022 season is Los Angeles Clippers‘ Chuck the Condor who took home the mascot of the year award. For reference, the minimum salary for a player in the NBA is $1,017,781 USD and the average WNBA salary is $102,751 USD.
