by May 18, 2012

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.'”
