Ball boy out of bounds

Oklahoma City Police are currently investigating death threats tweeted at Houston Rockets’ guard Patrick Beverly by a Thunder ball boy. The ball boy had tweeted two tweets one saying “Patrick Beverly (sic), I’m coming to kill you” and “@pavbev12 I’m coming to kill you.”

The ball boy had later apologized for the tweets and stated that his twitter account had been hacked. The Oklahoma City police, the Houston police, and the NBA are all looking in to the matter.

This “animosity” for Patrick Beverly stems from a play where Beverly ran in to Russell Westbrook’s knee in Game 2 of the the NBA Playoffs. The play at had a role in Westbrook’s knee injury that has him out for the remainder of the playoffs.
