Sport personalities may possess skill, strength and guile that's beyond what the average person can boast, but they're just people like you and me – and that means they often like the same things we do.

Take Cleveland Cavaliers' Jarrett Allen as an example. This NBA star is a massive Zelda fan, and has a collection of memorablitia related to the franchise, including a 3D-printed Hylian shield. His favourite Zelda game is Ocarina of Time (which was released in the year he was born, fact fans) and, like everyone else, he's a massive fan of Breath of the Wild.

Such is Allen's love of Zelda that when he scores, the iconic 'secret' sound effect is played over the stadium's sound system. This all started at his previous team, the Brooklyn Nets, when he was asked for a sound effect request for when he scored.

According to ESPN's Zach Lowe:

Allen first requested the effect with the Nets, when staffers approached players for suggestions. "It took me about 10 seconds to come up with the perfect one," Allen says. "Short and sweet."

It's a little hard to make out, but you can hear the sound in the following clip, around the 3-minute mark:
