Friday May 18th, 2012

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Blake's wife received death threats on Twitter against him and his family following a missed late-game three pointer, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"It's pretty disappointing that there's a lot of hateful people out there," Blake said. "You move on. 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 my kids, it makes me upset."

"I didn't see it," Blake said. "She told me about it. That's why I don't look at that crap. I just let it be."

Blake’s wife reportedly was forced to block over 500 people on the social networking service.
