Sixers mascot Hip Hop is hobbling after Achilles tendon injury

Sixers mascot Hip Hop is on the mend after injuring his Achilles tendon during a performance at a Philadelphia Freedoms game. A team spokeswoman says Hip Hop, whose real name the team guards like a state secret, is expected to be back to his acrobatic ways by season opener. The rabble-rousing rabbit has entertained fans (scared some, too) for 13 years. He injured his knee last summer but recovered by regular season.
