Earlier this month, it was reported that Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace had an experience with a ghost who apparently touched him inappropriately during the team's trip to Oklahoma City.
Now, another player, but from a different team, shares his own story about something spooky that happened inside his room at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel.
Justise Winslow and the Miami Heat are currently in town and are staying at the “haunted” hotel. The young forward could not help but recall his experience last year when he and teammate Tyler Johnson were forced to share a room as they both felt spooked out inside the establishment. Winslow confirmed having him as a roommate a year ago and also explained what he's been doing lately to avoid spending a lot of time alone in his room.
“That really happened.”
“I’m just trying to get through this trip as quickly as possible. I spend the least amount of time in my room. I go down, sit at the bar, and get me something good to eat. I don’t drink or nothing like that. I watch TV, watch football. But I don’t spend a lot of time in that room.”
Johnson also gave his take on why they chose to share one room before.
“I don’t like them spirits and all that stuff, I don’t like to play around with it. Sometimes it’s a little bit more safer knowing somebody’s there.”
Whether or not there's any truth to the ghost stories in the hotel, Heat captain Udonis Haslem gave a hilarious statement and made it clear that if the ghost decides to visit his room, he'll fight it off and make it realize he made the wrong decision of entering his room.
“A ghost will have a helluva time. He might as well go to another room because he’ll have the fight of his life if he comes to my room. It will cost him so much trouble he’ll just say I’m just going to the next room. He’ll say, ‘not tonight, this ain’t the room I need to be in.’”
