The Coyote is the official mascot of the NBA franchise, the San Antonio Spurs.

Biography

The Coyote's full name is Entertainus Carnivorous. After graduating from ACME University with hors d'eouvres, he was signed by the San Antonio Spurs to be their official mascot in June of 1983. Since then, the Coyote has become just as recognizable as some of the Spurs' greatest players, such as George Gervin, David Robinson, and Tim Duncan. Whether it be at the HemisFair Arena, the Alamodome, or his current home at the AT&T Center, this longtime supermascot has always played an important role in entertaining the fans at Spurs home games.

Accomplishments

The Coyote has been named the NBA's MVV (Most Valuable Varmint) 12 times during his career. During the 1993-1994 NBA season, he became the first mascot in NBA history to dunk both a basketball and a doughnut in a single game. In 2006, he was voted Mascot of the Year by www.gameops.com. Most importantly, the Coyote has endeared himself to the city of San Antonio, making over 400 community appearances a year and serving as a valuable goodwill ambassador for the Spurs. In recognition of his hard work on and off the court, the Coyote was inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame in 2007, the same year the Spurs won their 4th NBA Championship.
