Meet Bascat, the 2010 FIBA World Championship MascotCategory: Basketball
The 16th rendition of one of the most prestigious basketball tournaments in the world, the FIBA World Basketball Championship is being hosted by Turkey from August 28 to September 12, 2010.
Just like with any international sports competition, it would not be complete without its mascot.
Meet Bascat, the 2010 FIBA World Championship mascot!
Bascat is a Turkish Van, a cat breed native to Turkey generally with eyes of two different colors: blue and green.
According to its official page, Bascat thinks he is a dog.
He thinks he is the best basketball playing dog in the world only to realize that he is in fact a cat – but a brilliant and loveable and unique cat at that.
His head takes cue from the crescent moon depicted in the Turkish flag.
