Watch: Kings troll Pistons by replaying 49ers WR’s amazing catch


The Sacramento Kings welcomed the Detroit Pistons to the Golden 1 Center on Wednesday night and mercilessly trolled their opponents during the pregame introductions.

Bay Area fans are clearly still relishing in the San Francisco 49ers’ historic come-from-behind victory against the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship Game in late January. That comeback win was spurred by a host of wild plays, but arguably none were crazier than San Francisco wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk’s 51-yard reception following a deflection off Detroit cornerback Kindle Vildor’s facemask.

The Kings also had a slightly more subtle jab at fans in the Motor City during the pregame lineup reveal, playing the opening to Eminem’s award-winning 2002 song “Lose Yourself.” Eminem is one of the Lions’ most famous celebrity fans.

Whichever clever employee put together the replays of Aiyuk’s catch, along with Eminem’s hit in the background was likely confident that the Kings (29-21) would come through with an easy win over the NBA-worst Pistons (7-43). Unfortunately for Sacramento fans, Detroit had the last laugh in a 133-120 upset.

Wednesday was only the third road win of the season for the Pistons, as they improved to 3-20.
