ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Next season the Sacramento Kings will move into the new Golden 1 Center, and they want your help in constructing a new court…as long as you’re not a fan of one of their rivals.
The Kings are asking fans to donate their used basketball shoes, which the Kings will use to create a cushion for their new floor…
A key piece in making the portable court for the in-arena game surface is a special foam underneath the base layer of wood.
That foam is essential in creating a cushioned environment for players and greater distribution of weight.
To help create it, the team is asking fans to donate their used basketball shoes, which will in turn be utilized in the foam’s manufacturing.
There are several ways you can donate, which are listed on the site. And of course, don’t miss the editor’s note…
This is a unique opportunity for fans to be a part of an important element of the new arena, so we kindly ask fans not to donate any Kobe’s. 😉
