Monty Williams Hands The Warriors An Even Stronger Home-Court Advantage

The Golden State Warriors are essentially unbeatable at home, in no small part because of the legion of crazy-loud fans that pack Oracle Arena every game. There’s not much an opposing coach or player can do to mitigate such a home-court advantage during the playoffs, other than to play well and avoid saying anything between games that might give the fans reason to become even rowdier. Someone forgot to convey that piece of knowledge to Pelicans head coach Monty Williams.

Here’s what Williams had to say about the crowd noise inside Oracle Arena while speaking with reporters ahead of tonight’s Game 2:

“I’m not so sure the decibel level is legal, and I’m serious,” Williams said. “They’ve done studies on that. For the competition committee, there’s got to be something to that. It does get a little out of hand. Their fans, I’ve talked about it for years, they have some of the best fans in the league.”


Monty! You fool! All you’ve done with this weak-ass complaint is guarantee that the fans at Oracle Arena are going to be LIT tonight. It’s going to be the loudest crowd your squad has ever played in front of, and the competition committee isn’t going to do a damn thing about it, because that’s not how this shit works. They’ve done studies on that? C’mon, man, you fucked up.
