Audio: The Grant Napear Show – April 14, 2011
The show opened with Grant continuing his heartfelt words from last night’s (possibly) final Kings telecast. The team looked down and out, but magically, they were able to piece together one final run to force overtime and give the Arco faithful one last chance to blow the roof off of the aging building.
He then addressed reports from the NBA Board of Governor’s meeting that Mayor Johnson has a group headlined by billionaire Ron Burkle that is interested in investing to keep NBA basketball in Sacramento.
Grant’s longtime television partner and legendary Sacramento Kings personality Jerry Reynolds then joined the show, and the two reminisced about the years they’ve spent calling basketball together. They discuss the ups, the downs, and everything in between – all of which happened as employees of the Sacramento Kings.
In Grant’s second interview, Kings Radio Broadcaster Gary Gerould recapped his 26 years with the team on the Grant Napear Show. Grant and Gary talked about what losing NBA Basketball could mean to the city of Sacramento, and what this city and team has meant to them over the last few decades.
Grant then re-aired an interview the he did this morning on the Jim Rome Show, in which Grant and Jim lamented the potential loss of the Sacramento Kings and the impact it would have on the area.
The show closed with Grant taking a few phone calls from the droves of fans that still haven’t stopped buzzing from last night.
