NBA Playoff Game Interrupted by Former Stalker Stumbling Onto the Court

News

Well here’s something you don’t see every day.

An NBA playoff game between the Denver Nuggets and the L.A. Lakers was interrupted Sunday by a woman who wandered onto the court.

Lucky for Savannah McMillan-Christmas, she strayed onto the side where the least amount of action was taking place. Had she been on the opposite side of the court, she probably would have been plowed over.

Apparently, this isn't the first time McMillan-Christmas has caused a bit of a scene at a Nuggets game.  According to TNT sportscaster Craig Sager (via Deadspin):

The woman apparently randomly walking on to the floor. However this lady has a history with the Nuggets. I talked to a couple detectives, Detective Todd Eriksson who grabbed her and walked her off the court. Said several years ago she was found stalking, following several players, basically banned from the arena.

She got in tonight. Taken off. Taken over to the security area back here where — where, supervisor of the police department, Sergeant Larry Subia, obviously handled the case. They have charged her with trespassing. ironically this was Sergeant Subia's perhaps final game after 34 years as a supervisor and working in the police department. 30 of those here at the Denver Nuggets. He is retiring end of the year. And if the Nuggets don't force Game Six his final game.

But that’s not all.

“McMillan-Christmas has been accused of stalking [Kenyon] Martin in the past,” NESN’s Mike Cole writes, referencing the former Nuggets player.

However, as Cole points out, Martin doesn't even play for the Nuggets anymore. He plays for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Which would mean if she was trying to sneak a peek of Martin again she's pretty much the worst stalker in the world.
