During the Oklahoma City Thunder’s flight from Minnesota on Friday, something apparently massive squished the nose cone of their plane.
After losing to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night 119-116, the Oklahoma City Thunder boarded their flight that was taking them to Chicago for a matchup against the Bulls. During their excursion, something hit the front of the plane while they were 30,000 feet in the air. Nobody got hurt, thank God, but the photos are puzzling. Carmelo Anthony was one of the first to put up a picture.
Steven Adams also took to social media. Unlike Anthony, he went looking for answers and tweeted at NASA, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye to see if they had anything to say. They have yet to respond.

According to ESPN’s Royce Young, a team official said that “the flight was a little rough, but not extreme or out of the ordinary.” Delta Air Lines said that the most likely explanation was the plane hitting a bird. That must’ve been a dinosaur-sized bird because the nose of the plane is squished inward. I hope nobody ever encounters whatever creature Delta is talking about. (What if it was Karl-Anthony Towns? After all, he beat up the Thunder on Friday night to the tune of 33 points and 19 rebounds.)
Oklahoma City’s next game is Saturday against the Chicago Bulls at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. The Thunder (2-3) look to return to .500 in the contest.
