Star player Russell Westbrook said: "You never take anything for granted, just be thankful and blessed they we were able to land the plane and everything was OK."
He added: "Seeing stuff like that just shows you how you need to cherish life and understand the important things in life and embrace every moment."
Another player, Carmelo Anthony, shared a photo of the damage with the caption: "What possibly could we have hit in the SKY at this time of night? Everyone is Safe, Though. 'All Praise Due.'"
No one knows for certain what the plane hit. However, Delta Airlines indicated that it probably hit a bird while landing.
