Several players demanded an explanation for the damage.

“We had a rough flight to say the least,” New Zealand star Steven Adams said in a Tweet addressed to NASA, prominent astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson and scientist Bill Nye.

“30,000 feet in the air. Flying to Chicago. What caused this?” Adams wrote above an image of the damaged plane.

Carmelo Anthony was similarly concerned, posting the same image of the plane’s badly dented nose.

“What possibly could we have hit in the SKY at this time of night? Everyone is safe, though,” Anthony wrote.

The Thunder were travelling to Chicago to face the Bulls later Saturday following a 119-116 loss to Minnesota on Friday. /cbb
