"One letter, mailed from Cleveland and postmarked April 24, 1989, arrived about two months after Cavaliers guard Mark Price suffered a concussion following a Rick Mahorn elbow, and three months after Cleveland's Brad Daugherty and Detroit's Bill Laimbeer had an on-court fistfight."

According to the report, the psychotic Cavs fan included the following details in the threatening letter:
"God made me realize that YOU, not Laimbeer, Mahorn or any of the others are the one possessed by (Satan)," the author wrote in the one-page handwritten letter addressed to "Mr. Chuck Daly."Apparently Chuck Daly wasn't too shook up about theses threats though. He never made any public statements about the threatening letters, and Rick Mahorn as well as Joe Dumars recently said they never heard anything about any of these threats directed towards their coach prior to this report. Chuck Daly - the Hall of Famer - was 78 when he died last year. The author of the this particular letter, as well as a series of others he received stating he would "pay dearly," remain unknown.
