Jordan Bell Recounts Creepy Details of the Stalker That Forced Him to Move

Jordan Bell and his girlfriend went through a scary experience last season.

Back in June, we learned (through a profile on Bell by Logan Murdock of the Bay Area News Group) that the then-rookie forward had to move residences early in the season because of a stalker.

After practice on Monday, Bell discussed the scary details.

"I kept seeing him everyday. He was standing outside, wearing glasses, had a backpack," Bell told reporters. "I'm thinking he's just a fan who wants an autograph. But he was there every single day ... for a week, everyday, I did it (signed an autograph) because I had just got here and I wasn't signing autographs like crazy.

"And then, my girlfriend was walking our dogs outside and he came behind her (Bell mimics somebody putting his hands on her shoulder) and was like, 'Yo, is Jordan here?' And she was freaked out, and it's dark, she's by herself ... he was bigger than her so she was frightened. She said he looked like a creep.

"So I had to move."

Bell relocated to a quieter neighborhood and hasn't dealt with a similar issue again. But he is still dealing with some legal ramifications.

"I had to fight forever with the people at the building to let me out my lease because of the situation ... it's still on-going," Bell said.

Was this his "Welcome to the NBA moment?"

"That was an 'I don't want to be in the NBA anymore moment," Bell joked. "That was crazy ... you hear about stuff like that. I just think of that stuff on movies or shows -- I don't think it actually happens. Especially me. I'm not KD or Steph."
