Fortunately, the entire thing turned out to be a false alarm.
However, the Boston Celtics’ plane was the target of a bomb threat as the team headed to Oklahoma City so the Celtics could face the Thunder Sunday night. Here are the details, via A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.
There was a bomb threat to the Boston Celtics’ team plane to Oklahoma City on Saturday afternoon, but no one was injured.
The incident will be investigated by NBA security which will work in conjunction with the FBI on this matter which was one of several hoaxes called into airports across the country on Saturday.
When the Celtics’ plane landed the players were instructed to leave their personal belongings on the plane, and they were taken to the team hotel, where they had to wait for their bags to arrive while the plane was checked out by police.
Fortunately, this turned out to be nothing. Jae Crowder summed it up well.
