The Jersey Journal’s Terrence T. McDonald reports a former NBA Properties security guard was handed a prison sentence yesterday after pleading guilty to making bogus bomb threats against The Association.

Jose Quesada, 20, pleaded guilty to making several calls to the NBA Properties office on 100 Plaza Davis from his cell phone over a two-day period in July 2010, according to federal officials. Quesada left voicemail messages saying he “put a bomb outside” the office and planned to “kill all the NBA,” officials said.

“No way out,” he said in the voicemail message, according to officials. “Gonna blow up at 9 o’clock in the morning … if you come out, it will blow up.”

There’s no truth to the rumor, by the way, that Quesada’s arrest followed several months of terroristic threats against the WNBA, all of which were presumed to be vignettes for sports talk radio programs.
