Oklahoma City Thunder Rumors
The Celtics landed safely in Oklahoma City on Saturday evening, and a bomb threat involving the team’s chartered plane appears to have been a hoax. A team spokesman said the Celtics became aware of the threat while in the air, but only a handful of staffers on board the private flight were alerted. The Celtics made their scheduled landing at Oklahoma City’s Will Rogers World Airport, where authorities met the team on the tarmac and advised players to leave personal belongings behind on the plane so they could be examined.
Cuban, the outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner who declared during last season’s playoffs that Westbrook wasn’t a superstar, said he still isn’t convinced even though Westbrook is on pace to be the first player to average a triple-double since Oscar Robertson in 1962-63. “He’s putting up superstar numbers. That’s for damn sure,” Cuban said of Westbrook as the Thunder took on the Houston Rockets on Friday night. “I’m not taking anything away from what he’s been able to accomplish, but I’m not going to change my definition. He’s putting up superstar numbers. You can’t deny that.”
