If I were Tony Parker I think I’d be part terrified, part flattered at the notion someone would threaten my life because my postseason play has been so amazing.

According to a report via Project Spurs, the San Antonio Spurs point guard, was the target of a death threat during Game 1 against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday. Extra security was needed after the death threat came in with five minutes left in the game.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s office is investigating death threats made against Tony Parker.
Sunday night, someone called 911 with about five minutes left in the game and made a threat against Tony Parker.
The information was passed on to the sheriff’s office, who handles security at the AT&T Center.
Security was increased immediately, but it was determined there was no immediate danger.
Parker was escorted to his home by deputies, just to be safe.
The report says that the threats are still being investigated.
