NBA player death threats: Oklahoma ball boy tweets threats to Patrick Beverley

NBA player death threats: Oklahoma ball boy tweets threats to Patrick Beverley, Ball boys are fans too. As it turns out, they are quite passionate.

Upcoming Yahoo! is reporting April 29 that police are investigating after a ball boy for the Oklahoma City Thunder tweeted death threats to Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley.

Thunder star Russell Westbrook suffered a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee in Game 2 of the playoffs when Beverley lunged at him attempting a steal. Some believe the play was dirty.

Westbrook had knee surgery Saturday and is out for the season.

Oklahoma ball boy Mitchell Brown, who now says his Twitter account was hacked, tweeted the following to the Rockets Beverley:

“Patrick Beverly (sic), I'm coming to kill you.”

He later sent another one with Beverley's Twitter name, saying:

“@pavbev21 I'm coming to kill you.”

He later apologized in one tweet and then said he was hacked in another post. The account has since been taken down.

Oklahoma City police Captain Dexter Nelson tells The Associated Press that their department is working with the Houston police and the NBA to investigate the threats.

The Thunder says in a statement that they “do not condone his comments. He works game nights on a voluntary basis and the matter will be handled internally.”
