We've seen our fair share of crazy NBA fans over the years. But we've never heard about an NBA fan doing something as crazy as what one reportedly just did to Tony Parker for no apparent reason.

According to WOAI in San Antonio, someone called 911 during Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals and made a threat against Tony Parker's life. The call came from a pay phone during the Spurs/Grizzlies playoff game and included a specific threat made against Parker. As a result, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office started investigating the call immediately and also provided Parker with extra security on his way out of the AT&T Center on Sunday night.

"We immediately increased security both inside the AT&T Center and outside the AT&T Center," a police spokesman said.

Nothing happened. But still, how crazy is that? Chill, NBA fans. It's just a game!
