Following the successful operation to eliminate Osama bin Laden, the NBA issued a mandate to include metal detectors to screen all patrons entering arenas.

Of course there's an alerted level of caution following the death of bin Laden, especially at sporting events where large groups gather. Games tonight in Chicago and Los Angeles will feature the detectors. This is the first time the Bulls have used metal detectors, which are hand-held.

This is just part of an overall enhanced security protocol across the country in the aftermath of the events of Sunday.

Forget the patrons.. You need metal detectors for the players entering the arena.

Wow, your anti-terrorism techniques are solid and your logic is sound.  You work for the TSA don't you... and you like to "frisk" people!  I knew it.

Terrorists don't care about the baskets David, stop making your league more important then it now is, all thanks to you David.

Right now they are in the planning stage, the Al Queda would never rush into emo planning like that.  By the time they hatch a new plan and make it work we will be in the new NBA season.  Like two years from now. Face/Off is purely fiction not some reality.

You don't kill upwards of 10,000 NBA viewers when you can get more with more heinous well thought-out terrorists plots.

Gotta love the racial undertone when it comes to NBA, I think alot of white people do not watch basketball anymore because the American born white basketball player makes up maybe 5 percent of the league. Thus, of course the league is now full of thugs. Yea, when was the last time you saw a 6'9 player breaking in some one's house, on the corner selling drugs or even working at your local McDonalds. The reason being they are basketball players, not gangster or thugs. So get a life.
