Emotions have officially boiled over in Oklahoma City.
While fan enthusiasm is often encouraged in the Association, this is taking matters too far. After the recent trades of stars Paul George and Russell Westbrook to Los Angeles and Houston respectively, Thunder GM Sam Presti and coach Billy Donovan have apparently been mentioned in a threat from an angry OKC supporter.
Per court documents, the fan alleged to want to 'blow things up', a phrase that will always invoke fear in an organization as public and a part of the community as the Thunder are in Oklahoma City. OKC fans have every right to be frustrated, but there is very clearly a line that has been crossed in threatening serious and life-threatening action just for starting a rebuild.
While they may be frustrated, we can safely assume that the majority of Thunder fans don't feel this way, and certainly aren't willing to take matters to such an extreme.
Hopefully this matter is resolved quickly, and Presti and Donovan can return to comfortably surveying the remainder of the NBA offseason.
