Insane Protester Attaches Herself to Basket During Minnesota Timberwolves Playoff Game

For the second time in less than a week, a protester has caused a delay during an NBA basketball game.

A woman chained herself to the basket during the second quarter of a playoff game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies. Security was unable to get her unchained and she was physically removed from the arena.

According to a report from Evan Barnes of The Commercial Appeal, this protest was related to the one that took place in the same arena last Tuesday.

“Per the Grizzlies: The protestor is being removed from the building after she was escorted off the floor,” Barnes tweeted. “She’s connected to the previous protest at the Timberwolves play-in game and wore a ‘Glen Taylor Roasts Animals Alive’ shirt as she chained herself to the basket.” According to USA Today, the woman also threw flyers all over the court.

With 3:34 remaining in the second quarter, play was stopped while the Timberwolves were shooting free throws. This was to remove the woman protesting on the other end of the court.

Other tweets surfaced, claiming it was an animal rights protest.

Remember when sports were a fun "escape" from all of the things we take too seriously in the real world? Those days are long gone.
