On a night when the Denver Nuggets should have been celebrating a much-needed victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, the franchise continued to struggle with off-the-court issues when an April Fools' Day joke sparked anything but laughter.

During Denver's 109-92 victory, a former Nuggets ball boy, Laquan Johnson, got into the club's locker room, took Kenyon Martin's car keys and filled the player's Range Rover with buttered popcorn. The car had a white interior.

Martin discovered the damage as he was about to exit Denver's Pepsi Center. At the time, he had no idea who had pulled the prank. Angered, he went back to the locker room spewing profanities and threats at teammates and other members of the organization.

"That ain't no [expletive] joke," Martin said. "I'm going to find out who did it ... put my [expletive] hands on one of y'all. I'm going to put my hands on whoever did it. You better believe that. It's [expletive] personal. You better believe it."

Martin, who has missed 15 games with a torn patella tendon in his left knee, threatened to boycott the postseason if he did not find out who was responsible.

"How 'bout if I don't play in the playoffs until somebody tells me who did it," Martin said more than once.

Martin stormed in and out of the locker room several times, and a person close to him said his anger was not over the prank, but over the fact that someone could go into his pocket and take his keys during a game. Realizing the culprit had to have access to the private code for the team's gated parking lot, he assumed members of the organization either pulled the stunt or assisted in it.

"The fact that no one saw it or had anything to say about it -- not security, not the equipment manager," a person close to Martin said, explaining the player's anger. "Somebody had to see it. He was wondering how the organization let something like that happen. What if the kid had really wanted to do something evil?"

Later, Martin found out Johnson, the former ball boy who is now the driver for teammate J.R. Smith, was responsible. Johnson apologized to Martin and agreed to pay for the damage to his car.

"It was just an April Fools joke that went horribly wrong," said a member of the Nuggets organization who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "The kid thought it would be funny and it wasn't. Kenyon was back at practice today and everything was fine between him and his teammates."

The episode was the latest in a string of distractions Denver has had to deal with lately. Once regarded as the Western Conference's top challenger to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Nuggets have all but fallen apart down the stretch.

With Martin out and coach George Karl missing games while getting treatment for throat cancer, Denver had lost five of six games before defeating Portland. That stretch dropped them from the second seed to the fifth seed in the West.

Martin, who cannot guarantee he'll be healthy for the playoffs, said before Thursday's game that he hopes to return for the last regular season game or two.

Dude buttered popcorn in a white Range Rover is just stupid. That former ball boy is a perfect fit for JR Smith, they both are mentally challenged.

I don't blame Kenyon being pissed but to call this a distraction is a stretch. The reporter even says he was back the next day and everything was fine.

K Mart has done a good job of hiding his cancer the last couple season but it's always just right there under the surface waiting to reoccur, it's hard to feel too much sympathy though, what's next, he'll hold out because someone scratched his Bentley?

I can understand why he would be pissed off, but he didn't handle it in the best manner. Telling his team he woulnd't play in the post season until the culprit was revealed, "What a team player?". I find it difficult to pull for K Mart because I think he is a d*** who thinks he's a hard a**. Too bad somebody like Charles Oakley isn't around to put this phony tough guy in his place.

Thats not the point. Pranks are fine but there is a line. Why buttered popcorn, thats just malicious. Use packaging popcorn or something else.

I would be just as pissed as Kenyon and don't think his reaction is cancerous.

I agree but any prank that leaves any damage, no matter how small is not a prank. That is vandalism. I would have beat the crap out of the guy if I was able, but i can't be sued for millions so rich stars have to be smarter then us avg joes. Just how it is.

Still butter and oily residue on your pimp Range Rover enough to piss anyone off. Also going into someones locker to steal keys to pull off a prank is just going to far IMO. People have private things they may not want you to see. Pranks need to be more intelligent then doing damage and violating someones rights.

IMO the team needs to ban that driver from the facility and tell his his boss to get a new driver.

Funny, this is the second time you've "put me on ignore". And you basically used the same line last time. I give you 2 weeks before you "take me off again"

K-Mart gets paid $15,852,511 a year for his 11 points and 9 boards a game, while missing his usual 15-20 games.

That's about $255,000 a game or about $7500 for every minute he is on the floor.

I'm not a hater and I'm not jealous....just pointing out that he is living the dream and to lighten up a little bit. I'm sure the Nuggets would be more then willing to get your ride cleaned up and looking like new again.
