According to ESPN, The Washington Wizards are saying that the NBA has investigated a person who allegedly made threats against the team on Twitter during its first-round series against the Chicago Bulls.
Center Marcin Gortat spoke on Thursday after Wizards' practice saying that there was "one gentleman who really threatened us, actually made some terrorist threats to us."
Gortat, the Polish Hammer, went on to say that "(the threat maker) was saying there was a bomb on the plane and stuff, that my country's (Poland) going to get bombed and all my family's going to die, just stuff like that."
According to the ESPN report, the tweets in question came after the Wizards' Game 2 win in Chicago last week.
Wizards spokesman Scott Hall said the matter was turned over to the league. Gortat then added: "Some people already visited him."
The NBA was reached for comment but responded by saying it doesn't comment on security matters.
Washington clinched the series with a Game Five victory two nights ago on Chicago's home court at the United Center.
Gortat and his teammates Nene, Trevor Ariza, Bradley Beal and John Wall played immensely as the unfancied Wizards blew the Bulls out of the water in style and will go on to face the winners of the Indiana Pacers/Atlanta Hawks series.
