Snubbed for 2 seasons, Zach LaVine has finally become an All-Star with the Bulls. With 28.7 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 5.1 assists on average, the young back has put all the chances on his side to finally be recognized at its fair value. The consecration is deserved, but he will have to get used to this new status.
He also had a bitter experience on Thursday with a very strange and quite chilling news item. Zach LaVine is one of the best players in the league, wears a legendary franchise on his back, so he is bound to attract attention … According to the TMZ site, the rear is even the subject of the obsession of a fan determined to rub shoulders with him …
Police had to intervene at Zach LaVine’s home Thursday night after an “obsessed” woman showed up at his door before refusing to leave the scene. According to our police sources, LaVine was at home at the time of the incident. The All-Star wouldn’t know this woman.
She would have come from another state to see him and demanded to have a conversation with him. After police arrived at the scene, officers reportedly transported the woman to the nearest hospital to check her mental state. She was not arrested and no complaints were filed.
Here is a story that is cold in the back and which reminds that the life of a star is not necessarily all rosy… Zach LaVine had to face a woman determined to talk to him and who in addition made hours of journey to Chicago. Fortunately, she was not ill-intentioned, the situation could have been much more serious!
Zach LaVine made the noble decision not to press charges, which is totally respectable. However, he will have to review his security system since the story could have taken a tragic turn with a person more ill-intentioned than this fan.
