Teams' Use Of Pyrotechnics During Games
SOUNDING OFF: Stern said of music at games, "I appreciate there's New Age music, hip-hop. It's fine, but the reality is I think what's happened is some very well-intentioned people feel it's their obligation to root their team on to victory, to urge them, and they do it by turning up the loudspeaker in the building, even though there are babies in the building" (BOSTON GLOBE, 5/13). But Cavaliers F LeBron James said of pyrotechnics and loud music during games, “I think it’s great. It gets the crowd excited. We all know without the fans there are no players or league. The fans really get the game going. It’s great to have that kind of entertainment” (“Mike & Mike in the Morning,” ESPN2, 5/13).
