Phoenix Suns post job to hire new gorilla

The Suns starting lineup is undergoing some big changes, and so is the team’s mascot.

A new posting on an NBA jobs website said the Suns are looking for a “world-class performer and ambassador” to fill the position as the mascot.

While some may think the job is primarily dancing around and performing stunts dressed as a gorilla, interested applicants should also expect to attend mascot conferences, regularly update the gorilla’s website and social media and help in the creation of new half-time shows and activities to keep the crowd entertained.

Interested applicants also are required to have a college degree, ability to interact with large crowds and of course be in great physical shape.

Oh, Microsoft Office skills are also required. We’re not sure why.
