Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

We are counting down the days until the Hawks’ season-opener in Dallas by giving you 50 things to be excited about this year. With 29 days left, today’s reason is…

Ryan Cameron

Ryan Cameron is one of the fun and most energetic arena PA announcers in the NBA.  His enthusiasm, from lineup introductions to the final buzzer, help get the fans and the players pumped up.  We’re looking forward to another season with Cameron on the mic at Philips Arena, including some of his trademark calls:

– “Kyle Korver (or any other Hawks player) for THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”

– “That foul was OFFENSIVE, ___________.” (fill-in-the-blank with opposing player)


– “Kiss Cam.  KISS Cam.”

I’m particularly interested in seeing how he’ll introduce some of our players.  With so many new guys, he will have plenty of chances to get creative, and you know he will.

We also want your input.  What are you most excited about this upcoming season.  Leave a comment below to let us know, and we may feature your idea in our countdown!
