Lakers Fans Tweeted Death Threats to Steve Blake and His Family

Things became ugly in Laker Nation after Steve Blake missed the potential winning three against the OKC Thunder in Game 2, and some idiots sent Steve Blake and his people death threats via Twitter. From the LA Daily News: “Blake’s wife, Kristen, tweeted that she had to block 500 accounts after the game, including several profanity-laced threats against the veteran player, his wife and their three young sons. Blake said he didn’t read them, but his wife made him aware of them. ‘It’s pretty disappointing,’ Blake said. ‘There’s a lot of hateful people out there, you know? I just don’t appreciate it when it’s toward my family. You can come at me all you want, but when you say things about my wife and kids, that makes me upset.’”

    Disgusting lack of class. Anyone who engages in anything like this needs to get out of the house a little more.

    LA fans…
    Kobe did nothing wrong guys.

  • Fat Lever

    It’s just sports. If you take the game of basketball that seriously, you need a life.

  • Marc

    i’m a lakers fan and this is just pathetic. Now i see why alot of other fans don’t like lakers fans smh.

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    I wonder how many of these so-called fans would talk sh*t if they were face to face with athletes.

  • Heals

    Damn, death threats for anything nowadays. I hate how casually people can do this too. Hopefully “we” can find a way to punish them in a just manner. Sick of anonymity for folks doing this shht…

  • Zack

    I’m sure a good number of them would talk shit if they were face to face with Blake… Now, Artest on the other hand…

    Thats Too Much

  • Jer dawg

    It’s dumb of people to make empty threats. I’m upset Lakers lost, I can’t stomach the way Bynum and Gasol are playing. I’m upset about organization overall. But I don’t need to make death threats toward anyone. Very cowardly those shameful lowlives. Ugly side of fans. They aren’t fans. They are STUPID people.

    That’s crazy business right there. Sports isn’t that serious and cosign everyone so far they need to get a life.

  • Riggs

    stay classy laker fans smh. Those same people wouldve been riding his jock had he made it.

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    Pathetic behaviour, truly sad. Twitter is more curse than blessing for famous people imo. Interaction is nice and all but she had to block five HUNDRED people? That, to me, is a shocking number talking trash to a guy cause he missed a shot.
    Anti-social media indeed.
    He should just open an anonymous account on Twitter and let some PR firm or assistan run his official one.

  • stylez g. write

    Yeah those Bruins fans are something else,huh…

  • thursti

    Dark he probably does do that haha, his wife had to make him aware of it so its not likely he keeps up with twitter himself esp after 500+ death threats were issued.

  • tomtom

    These arn’t fans, they are morons and in no way represent the rest of us. golakers!

  • Mike Mihalow

    One of many reasons why I hate most Lakers fans.

  • LA Huey

    Off topic but does anyone see the resemblance of Steve Blake and House.

  • jayrose

    That’s just sad…..this guy wouldn’t even had to go for a game winning bucket if lakers didn’t turn over the ball when they had the lead in the closing minutes….real pathetic how ppl are.

  • http://stapledesign.com Spaceship Jay

    Delete your twitter account.

  • http://slamonline.com GotHandles?

    always keepin it classy, LA.

    La Huey ftw!

  • bike

    It was actually Jack Nicholson tweeting multiple death threats. Over and over again.

  • http://moontain.org Fredd

    i feel good reading your reactions guys … the future is bright i’m sure !

    Zack don’t underestimate Blake, youtube Steve Blake fight.

  • Jzakoni

    How dumb can laker fans be

  • R32

    In a page taken from MWP, Blake was open but pass to Kobe.

  • http://yahoo Hex

    Thats a Bangwagoner for you… punch yourself loser

  • Ldub

    I wonder if Blake got love mail/tweets when he hit the big shot against the nuggets in game 7??
    And if MWP would have waited for Kobe to get open, there would have been a potential 5 second call. They didnt have anymore timeouts and that was a really really really good look for just about anyone in the L. IMO it was a good decision by Metta to get the ball in bounds. There was still time where Blake could have waited for RW to fly by, but hey, it is what it is. He missed the shot, game over, now to LA, move on ppl.

  • http://yahoo Hex

    lousy banwagon fans need to all get off the party train

  • KidCongo

    Now we know what Kobe did that night. Created 500 Twitter accounts.

  • AiRsMiTh

    People are great

  • t-sizzle

    Kobe texted a death threat. He text Blake’s phone as well as Blake’s wife. He said he was gonna off Blake and give the wife a Kate Faber special. Blake’s wife now has an an*l lock on her azz.

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    It will pass…

  • IamYOU

    Whatsup with all the Death Threats this year/playoffs? man it’s crazy!

  • al

    fing hippies….
    seriously blake take care of your fam,
    and anyone who is doin that get out of LA and get a life

  • t-sizzle

    Hippies dont make death threats. Hippies are for peace, a-hole.

  • Bwill32

    i gotta say… its pretty low class of them, but it should be expected by athletes at this level. I don’t condone this type of behavior but its part of the territory

  • ken

    Blake missed, but it was a good shot. Remember, Steve Blake bailed us out on Game 7. I can’t believe how seriously stupid people are, threatening a man and his family like this. #LakerGang go steve blake!

  • PnoyVibe

    I’m sure these are the bad fans, most of the Lakers fans are better than that

  • lakernation

    Fans have short memories… its what have you done for me lately and BLAKE just made a lot of fans mad thats all, they will be alright if blake comes back and redeems himself in the next game.

  • Ldub

    @lakernation…what exactly does he have to do to redeem himself? The game will be different, the score will be different and he wont get that look again. Does he have to go out and drop 15pts with 8 dimes? Its not like it was a horrible, off balanced, in between 3 defenders attempt. Dude was WIDE open, he just missed. That is all. Prime example of people not seeing the Lakers as a TEAM. Its ALL about Kobe. They arent going to win anything with Kobe doing EVERYTHING. And he has to trust his team. His reaction after Blake shot it was that similar to a little kid that just dropped their ice cream on the ground! He could have fouled Thabo and saved another 2 seconds. Instead Pau had to run over and foul him. Plus wasnt it Kobe who had 2 turnovers in the last few minutes? Its a team game, not one person should be blamed. They all failed to stop Durant and Harden down the stretch!

  • Lower East Scribe

    Lakersnation: Redeem himself? He missed a shot, he didn’t commit a crime. And who has to make anything up to a bunch of dim-witted fans like you and the loser twitter thugs who threaten people over a game?

  • Heals

    @stylez, that shht was ignorance at it finest. Bos has come a long, long way, but those POV’s are soooo deep seeded in some pockets of the NewEng area…

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Geez freaks calm down. I feel like it gets tossed around to much, but THIS IS A GAME. Like Monopoly. Just with athletes and a ball and real money involved. Still just a game though.

  • MaxIsNative

    stay classy humanity.

    i still believe that laker fans are respectfull fans regardless of what people say of them… stuff like this ticks me off because although i am not a Laker fan in any way, this doesnt help with the sterotype that laker fans are sore losers and that is unfair toward the true fans

  • DEN

    laker fans are loud, unfaithful fans period.
