Default What all skills does an NBA mascot need to master?

Here's what I've seen from Rumble (OKC's mascot) alone. Mascots must be some of the most talented people on the planet:

-Playing the drums
-Walking on stilts
-Flips, backflips and other gymnastics
-Walking tightropes
-Dancing
-Juggling
-Making crazy half court shots
-Spinning a basketball and doing basketball-related tricks

What else? Can you imagine what a resume for a mascot job must look like?

They probably need to have good awareness of their surroundings. Because people are always trying to do funny things to them or funny things around them. And then reacting appropriately is not always easy because it's hard to see and hear in those suits.

Well, that's not really a "skill."

A skill is more like something that can be practiced, learned, performed, etc.
