Boston Celtics fans already felt like their team was robbed when Paul Pierce was ejected during the Game 1 defeat to the Miami Heat. Now we know they have a legitimate gripe because the team really was robbed after an April loss to the Heat during the regular season.
Yahoo! Sports reports that when the Celtics boarded their team bus to leave American Airlines Arena they realized “Someone had snuck onto the bus and stolen cash and belongings from the coaches’ and players’ bags.” It was apparently pretty bad — a lot of money was taken.
It doesn’t get much worse than that. Talk about a serious kick to the balls huh? Athletes are already prime targets for crimes because they are wealthy, have expensive belongings, and because people know their schedule. This just sounds like outright thievery and it totally sucks. Let’s just hope nobody made off with an AK-47 assault weapon during this heist.Google+
