During sports events, there's a "trumpet sound" which is played in game time, particularly in the NBA when team is on attack / ball possession. The same sound is used by default in the NBA 2K14 video game as well. What does this sound mean?

  • Could you explain how this is different from your previous question which you chose to delete?
