Sad news about our friend Sadiki Fuller the original Thunder Mascot for the Golden State Warriors. He passed away in his sleep in early May. He was a dynamic personality, talented performer and good friend. He will be missed.
The Warriors offered this tribute to Sadiki with lots of great clips and footage from his run as Thunder.

In recent years Sadiki was working as a stand-up comic and acting.
Editor Jon Cudo and Marc Taylor, who both worked as NBA mascots with Fuller, reflected on Sadiki the friend and performer in the June 2018 Podcast.
You can also see Sadiki doing stand up in many clips on Youtube. I think he would have like the chance to make you laugh, so check him out.
