Oklahoma City Thunder: Plane nose crumpled midair by…a bird?

Jarrod Young replied to Adams, suggesting that the plane's crushed in nose might have had something to do with one of his fellow Oaklahoma City Thunder players.

But center Steven Adams called it, "a rough flight to say the least".

The Oklahoma City Thunder's plane is believed to have collided with a bird in mid-flight.

Delta Spokeswoman Elizabeth Wolf told NPRthat while crews are still investigating, the "something" is likely a bird, a common culprit in mid-air collisions. They left Minneapolis around 11:30 p.m. for Chicago, where they have a game scheduled against the Bulls Saturday night.

If you do an internet search for this type of crash, you'll find they're not uncommon because the nose of the plane is constructed from softer materials than the rest of the plane.

A Thunder spokesperson said early Saturday that all players, staff and coaches were safe and en route to their hotel. The aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, landed safely without incident; customers have since deplaned and maintenance is evaluating.

Carmelo Anthony also posted a photo of the plane, but on Instagram. "Thank God the OKC Thunder team plane landed safely after hitting something in the sky".
