There has been a reported terror threat targeted to the 2010 Europe Live Games.  The Lakers are one of the teams involved in Europe live, and team officials said they are in close contact with the authorities.   The Lakers have been told not to change their daily routines or sight-seeing plans.   It seems as though the Lakers will not be hurt in anyway, but this situation is  very scary for the Lakers and the NBA.  David Stern wants to expand the NBA to Europe, but this terror threat has to change his mind.
