Bailey from the LA Kings
On Twitter: 41.8k followersOn Instagram: 46.5k followers

The LA Kings primary twitter account (@LAKings) is known for having the best account in all of professional sports so it is no surprise that their mascot, Bailey has one of the most popular accounts among mascots. The Kings are known for having great comeback responses to people that hate on their team, and Bailey is great at that too. Bailey doesn’t just stop with his own team though; he defends and supports all of his fellow LA sports teams.

Bailey never backs down from a fight and he never really loses them. Bailey also does lots of contests and promotions so his fans continue to be engaged even during the off season.
