NBA Coach Mocks Fans For Pizza Celebration

March 27, 2012 by staff 

NBA Coach Mocks Fans For Pizza Celebration, A half-dozen times a year, these stories tend to hit. Usually during that dull in-between that marks the end of the trade deadline season and the start of the playoffs. Some home crowd in some home arena doing something unseemly late in a game because a fast food promotion listed on the other side of a ticket ensured them a free artery-clogger.

In one-sided games, the cheers behind the statistical hallmarks (usually coming in the form of the home team getting to 100 points) are often the loudest in the game. And the saddest.

This was the case in Toronto on Monday night. Raptor big man Ed Davis nailed a shot late in the fourth quarter towards the end of his team’s blowout loss, the crowd went bananas (for pizza, ironically), and opposing Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy had no idea why. As detailed by the great Eric Koreen, at the National Post:

“I mean, everybody’s on their feet, standing ovation and the whole thing and then a guy in the crowd next to me sitting baseline said everybody gets a free pizza, so I guess that was exciting,” Van Gundy said. “That was the loudest the crowd was all night.

They were into that. That was a big basket by Ed Davis. They’re going to put that on the highlight film at the end of the year. I was like, ‘Wow, what happened, I thought they had like an 18-point play and tied the game or something.”
