Boston Celtics Deny Pumping in Artificial Crowd Noise

During last night’s nationally-televised tilt between the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, legendary broadcaster Marv Albert railed against the Celtics for supposedly pumping in artificial crowd noise. Albert wouldn’t let it go, and partner Steve Kerr joined in at one point and talked about other teams who employ similar tactics. According to the C’s, the noise inside their building is natural and entirely fan-created. Per the Boston Herald: “Marv Albert, who has called more games in the old and new Garden than just about anyone outside Boston, let last night’s TNT audience in on a suspicion he has about the building’s game night sound. Based on what Albert has heard, he believes Celtics management pumps in extra noise. ‘It seems that way, but they say no,’ Albert said after the Celtics’ 89-86 loss to the Knicks. ‘There’s times when it seems like there is suddenly a bump in the sound. But I really don’t want to make a big deal out of it.’ The Celtics responded to Albert’s claim with the following tweet: ‘Regarding comments on tonight’s (broadcast), the Celtics have never used artificial crowd noise.’”

    Marv Albert doesn’t lie.

    Get rid of the Jumbotron, also. It’s far too overpowering in many arenas.

    They might need to though because it seemed like there were more Knicks fans in there than BOS fans.

    so what if they do…is it illegal?

  • Caboose

    Yes. How dare they.

    signs of a near end of an era.

    How about pumping some artificial life into the team every now and then while they are at it?

    Not true. I’ve been to over a hundred games at the TD Garden and that’s just not the case. No one has ever made this accusation before this game. Marv Albert needs to stick to what he knows best… cross dressing and sodomy.
