Strange Woman Stumbles on Basketball Court During the NBA Playoffs
Savannah McMillian-Christmas stumbled on to the court during Game 4 of the NBA Finals at the Pepsi Center in Denver between the Denver Nuggets and the Los Angeles Lakers. Her goal was reportedly to meet her athletic obsession, Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin.
The game was broadcast nationally on TNT, so everyone in the stadium and the home viewing audience watched as Christmas was quickly pulled off the court by stadium security.
As she stumbled on to the court, she allegedly started screaming “Where is Kenyon?” as officials put a stop to the game so security could safely remove her from the floor. Unfortunately for Christmas, she wasn’t keeping as close of an eye on Martin as she thought since he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers back in February.
Police arrested her but did not detain her. Instead, they cited her for trespassing and released her pending a court appearance. She has been previously banned from the Pepsi Center for allegedly stalking Martin while he was with the Nuggets, according to The Denver Post.
This is probably the first time that a player has actually looked forward to moving to Los Angeles to play with the Clippers.
