Warriors GM Bob Myers will make damn sure he doesn’t have terrible seats to subject himself to this type of abuse that he had to go through in Game 2.
A Kings fan posted a video to Twitter of themselves loudly and ferociously ringing a cowbell while they stood behind the Warriors executive and shouted, “Let’s go.”
The incident took place at some point late in the game when the entire Sacramento crowd was on its feet.
“I don’t think Bob Myers and the Warriors staff were too happy with me. Lol. #LightTheBeam,” the account posted. The account that posted the original video has since been set to private after fans unearthed a history of tweeting racial slurs.
It’s been quite some time since they got a chance to use them in the playoffs, but Kings fans have always been known for having cowbells that irritated opposing players and coaches. The tradition began in 2002 when the Sacramento Kings were facing the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. During the series, Phil Jackson, the Lakers’ former head coach, was quoted calling Sacramento a “cow town” with “semi-civilized” fans.
The fans responded by bringing cowbells to every home game during the series. It got so loud with the cowbells that Jackson had to move the team onto the court during timeouts because of how badly Kings fans were giving it to them.
Warriors fans are also known for being incredibly loud during playoff time and their team will need every minute of it as they try and climb out of an 0-2 hole in their first-round series.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
