NBA investigating Twitter threats towards the Wizards
As it turns out, when you are good they are really all out to get you. Just ask Washington Wizards center, Marcin Gortat. Gortat was being hated on on twitter after the Wizards Game 2 win over the Chicago Bulls. This one gentleman, however, took things way over the edge.
After Thursday’s practice, Gortat had this to say to the media: “one gentleman who really threatened us, actually made some terrorist threats to us.” He continued saying, “he was saying there was a bomb on the plane and stuff, that my country’s going to get bombed and all my family’s going to die, just stuff like that.”
Gortat is from Poland so that could get hairy. The NBA does not comment on security matters, however the Wizards spokesperson, Scott Hall, said that the matter has been turned over to the league. Gortat added one last comment saying, “Some people already visited him.” This is likely referring to the guy speaking the big words on twitter, but carrying the small stick at this point.
