    As most of you know, numerous OKC fans went overboard in their reaction to Patrick Beverley on Twitter yesterday after news came out that Russell Westbrook needed surgery on his knee and could miss the remainder of the playoffs. Racism, death threats and all forms of ugliness were sent his way as Internet tough guys flocked to their keyboards.

    ... for a quick small sample, but it goes on and on and on. However, this one, found by Doctor Robert, is interesting.

    A 17-year old named Mitchell Brown, who according to his Twitter bio is a ballboy for the Oklahoma City Thunder, said he was going to kill Patrick Beverley, and then 7 hours later sent the same threat to Beverley himself.

    Photos on his instagram seem to confirm he really is a ballboy and would therefore work closely with the players.

    I saw this last night and wasn't sure how to handle it. He's 17 and did a stupid thing he probably doesn't mean and I decided to sleep on it, but in light of what a 19-year old did recently in Boston, you can't play around with stuff like this or assume someone is joking when they could be on the court with players in a possible Game 5 situation. I think we may need to let the Thunder know that they're employing a kid sending death threats to a player.

    There's no way he's going to be there from now on, right? How do you let him get near Patrick after that tweet, even if it was a joke?

    Scary find, Clutch. The kid looks like a dork, but OKC needs to take strong action and fire the guy, as well as apologize to Patrick Beverley.

    That's disgusting, hope this kid isn't employed by the Thunder after this. Injuries happen, if you watch any hard foul enough times it'll look dirty.

    Kid looks like a mass-shooter in the making. I wonder how he's going to cope when he realizes he's not really the "celebrity" he thinks he is.

    Also, lol at this Quentin Wu kid. Calling Pat Bev a n***** and then pissing on his own kind. Nice.

    Report this to okc office so they fire that kid. People employed by other companies have been fired for their tweets already.

    This is flabbergasting. Only a matter of time before the national media picks up on it?

    Losing a lot of respect for OKC fans by the hour, here.

    Someone will undoubtedly post in here and self-righteously say Rockets fans are just as bad or worse.. but this is bad no matter how you rationalize it.

    This death thread stuff should be taken seriously by the Thunder, the NBA, and even the police.

    Will not be amused if firing him is what sets him off.
