WATCH: Inside look at demolition site for Sacramento Kings’ new arena
by Jonathan Santiago & James Ham
Last week, Cowbell Kingdom took a tour of the Downtown Plaza, future site of the Sacramento Kings’ new arena. James Ham offered two unique perspectives on the demolition of the mall, including yesterday’s piece for Sunday Musings.
In the end, a crowd will gather to cut a long purple ribbon with a giant pair of scissors. Vivek Ranadive and Kevin Johnson will probably share the honor, as they should. They helped save the Sacramento Kings and accomplished something that seemed impossible.
But the building itself will mean so much more to so many people. Thousands of workers will drive by that building over its lifetime and be able to say, “I helped build that arena.” They will go to games and show their children the walls that they had a hand in constructing, and they will beam with a sense of accomplishment.
Take an inside look of last week’s tour of the Sacramento Kings’ new arena site in the video down below.
