This is where the love of sports reaches insane, stupid, and dangerous levels.
Oklahoma City police are reportedly investigating a scary situation where a guy allegedly made death threats against the entire Oklahoma City Thunder front office, general manager Sam Presti and coach Billy Donovan.
According to KOCO5, the man was very upset at Paul George being suddenly traded to the Los Angeles Clippers to play alongside Russell Westbrook.
A search warrant two voicemails the man left:
“Y’all traded Paul George but kept Raymond Felton. You kept Andre Roberson. Do y’all not love Russell Westbrook?” reads a transcript of one of the voicemails. “I hope he kill everybody. I want to kill everybody.”
The man was bold enough to state that he was from Virginia and didn’t care if the team reported him to the police.
“He then insulted head coach Billy Donovan and said that he’d beat everyone who works for the Thunder.
Later in the call, the man used a bomb reference, saying he’d blow things up if he ever went to Oklahoma.
Court documents said the man left a second voicemail about five minutes later. He doubled down on his earlier comments and threatened Presti and his family.”
Thunder officials released a statement saying, “We defer to the authorities and they can handle the situation as they see fit.”
God only knows how he felt when the team would soon trade Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets for Chris Paul, first-round picks in 2024 and 2026 and pick swaps in 2021 and 2025. He needs to be found and taken off the streets for a long time.
