Warriors public address announcer will call Kings’ game after NHL’s puck drops

Ray Ferraro won’t know until about 2 p.m. Tuesday who the Golden State Warriors will play in the first round of the NBA playoffs — and whether he’ll have a rooting interest.

That’s because the Warriors and the Sacramento Kings will tip off at the same time that the NHL season will officially start. So Ferraro, the Warriors’ public address announcer, won’t know whether he’ll be commenting on the game and, if so, about whom.

“I’ll be watching in real time,” he said Monday night. “If I’m up close, you get really good angles.”

Ferraro will have the unique opportunity to work several NHL games — perhaps one for each team he has worked with.

Between them, he has pumped up fans’ spirits at games for both Golden State and the Kings since 1983. Ferraro has been the PR announcer for the Kings’ home game since 1996, when the team moved to their new arena.

The duo also wrapped up together last week at the NBA preseason game between the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans, Ferraro said.

Then again, he and Ferraro have both worked for the same team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, for more than three decades. So while the outcome of the two games may not impact his rooting interests, Ferraro said that he won’t be hiding them from the other team’s fans.

“Everyone’s going to hear it,” he said. “[The Kings] won’t have a muzzle on me.”
