You don’t just go to a game for the players and the score, there’s more to it than that. You go to a game for the experience, the action, the entertainment, the comradery. It’s food and cheerleaders and mascots. It’s also music. Music that builds the tension and drives the game. Without all those things, some would argue, why go to the game at all? Why not just watch from home?
In an odd, and contested, decision, the Knicks decided to try out a little experiment on Sunday where they cut all in-game music and entertainment during the first half the game against the Golden State Warriors. It’s hard to imagine watching a basketball game without music. The decision was not met with a full range of support. Even players like Warriors’ Draymond Green had something to say about it, check out the link below.
Will this become a new trend, or is it a failed experiment? Music is a key ingredient to almost all forms of entertainment, including sports. It’s difficult to imagine the change in atmosphere with the loss of such an important component. What do you think? Would you want to attend a basketball game without in-game music and entertainment?
