Sacramento Kings Fans Will Try To Break The Guinness Book Of World Records’ Record For Loudest Indoor Arena On Friday
Back in the late 90’s early 2000’s, when the Kings were one of the best teams in the league led by Vlade Divac, Chris Webber, Peja Stojakovic, and Mike Bibby, the Kings had one of the best home court advantages in the league due to their loud fans. During that time, I believed that aside from maybe Salt Lake City, Sacramento was the toughest place to play in the NBA. Small market cities where the NBA team is the only pro team in town are always hard to play in because these teams are the only ticket in town, and so the whole city puts their heart and soul into supporting that team.
The Sacramento Kings’ fans are trying to further validate this belief by setting the new Guinness Book of World Records’ record for loudest indoor arena this Friday night against the Detroit Pistons, which will air live on ESPN. Given that they have almost lost their team to another city, this truly is a great chance for the city of Sacramento to show that they still deserve an NBA team, which is why I hope they break the record! I figure we will see and hear a lot of cowbells; a staple to any loud Sacramento crowd. Perhaps we will even see Christopher Walken at the game yelling “I need more cowbell.”
