Bob Myers is a type of NBA executives who can not go unnoticed wherever he goes. The Golden State Warriors president of operations is the chief architect of the franchise’s most golden period and one of many biggest dynasties in league historical past.
So it is daring that he made the choice to go to the Sacramento Kings‘ fan stand space to look at his group. Sacramento‘s area is by far the loudest to date within the playoffs. And yesterday they proved it once more.
At Golden 1 Area, and the Kings‘ earlier properties, it is customary for the complete crowd to ring cowbells to cheer on the group. However one fan determined to make use of it to wave it behind Myers‘ head for a lot of the sport.
This custom has a curious origin that dates again to the start of this century. When Sacramento was the most effective groups within the league with Webber, Stojakovic, Bibby and Rick Adelman on the bench, its largest rival was the Lakers of Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal and Phil Jackson.
The ‘Zen Grasp’, a New York urbanite, was keen on calling the Sacramento crowd “rednecks” throughout one among their fierce playoff battles. And, in witty response, Kings followers determined to fill the world with noisy cowbells till they turned one of many symbols of the franchise.
