The lowly Sacramento Kings are not giving their fans much to cheer about this season, but that didn't matter to the sellout crowd of 17,317 at Friday's game against the Detroit Pistons.
Those 17,317 people combined to shatter the Guinness Book of World Records mark for loudest roar at an indoor stadium, and they did it three times.
The previous record, 106.6 decibels, was set by Milwaukee Bucks fans in 2008. The Kings fans shattered that during a first-quarter timeout, reaching 124.9 decibels. They broke the record again at halftime and again before the fourth quarter. The last scream was measured at 126 decibels.
For reference, 115 decibels is about the noise level at a rock concert and 125 decibels is where pain sets in.
Kings fans fell just short of Kansas City Chiefs fans, who reached 137.5 decibels during a game earlier this year.
Unfortunately for Kings fans, their team couldn't match their performance. Sacramento fell to Detroit, 97-90.
