NBA's Thunder plane damaged during flight; no one hurt

the pictures are....WOW (link provided)

The Oklahoma City Thunder experienced a mid-flight scare.

The team was flying out of Minneapolis following Friday night's loss to the Timberwolves and was heading to Chicago when the plane apparently hit something with its nose at 30,000 feet.
