With the reigning 6th man of the year, James Harden, gaining interest from almost all teams around the league, Harden clearly wants to come back to Oklahoma City. Harden and Ibaka will both be restricted free agents in 2013, so the Thunder can offer both of them an extension. However, with both players playing in the Olympics, it seems as if things are frozen with their agents and Sam Presti. The only thing we know now is that Harden wants to be… Continue reading

When someone says,” Off-season,” the first thing that comes to my mind is: Rest. Not for these young guys, though. When Scott Brooks says in interviews that all of his players are gym rats he’s not kidding. Maybe it’s youth, or maybe it’s their motor, and strive for excellence. I call it… Greatness. Durant and Westbrook were almost automatics to make this year’s USA team that will head to London for the Olympics. With only two spots left on the team,… Continue reading
Be as emotional and hurtful as you want but there is nothing to be ashamed of as a Thunder fan. Coming into this year, the Thunder wanted to get by the Western Conference Finals and advance to the NBA Finals. Of course, the Thunder wanted to win it all as well. Oklahoma City didn’t just go to the Finals to lose. However, a goal was accomplished and the Thunder made the next step as a team and franchise. Oklahoma City… Continue reading
Its something that will be in my head all summer and for years and years to come. I was sitting in the American Airlines Arena wearing my Thunder gear, and left and right Heat fans were jumping around and going nuts. The clock was winding down; 3…2…1. The Miami Heat won the 2012 NBA championship. In the years to come, hopefully, it is the other way around. Maybe next year, Durant and Westbrook will be crying and hugging each other… Continue reading
When Russell Westbrook fouled Mario Chamlers with a little under one minute to go, I just stood there, and my mouth dropped wide open. I was shell-shocked. Totally speechless. How could he do that? I felt so bad for Russell at the moment. The guy had 43 points, 5 assists, and 7 rebounds. He was outstanding. Russell shut all the critics up with his terrific play. However, some will look back on tonight, and blame Game 4 of the NBA… Continue reading
You could see it coming. When the Thunder were down seven going into half, I was saying,”This game is far from over.” This whole year, Oklahoma City showed that they are a resilient team, with lots of heart. Game 6 against San Antonio was extremely similar to tonight. In Game 6 and tonight, the Thunder didn’t play well in the first half, but came out with incredible intensity which sparked a big run to win the game. It’s almost as if… Continue reading
Oh my god. I am speechless. How should I put this? I guess I should just get to the point. The Oklahoma City Thunder are going to the 2012 NBA Finals. There you have it. The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs,107-99, to win the series 4-2 and advance to the 2012 NBA Finals. Yes, the Thunder were down 14 after one-quarter, 34-20. Embarrassing. No other word to describe this quarter for the Thunder. Absolutely embarrassing. After one,… Continue reading

“Beat LA, Beat LA, Beat LA!”, the crowd yelled in 2010 and before every game this series. Wish granted! The Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 106-90, and won the series 4-1. Wow. Think about when this franchise started. The 29-59 season. Now, look where the Thunder are today. Back to back-to-back Western Conference appearances. Kevin Durant on the organization and the win, “It’s a step in the right direction, the Lakers are an unbelievable organization but tonight we came out… Continue reading

Coming into tonight’s game, the Thunder had taken a commanding 2-0 lead in the series but knew the Lakers had a chip on their shoulders and will come out strong on their home court. In game 1, the Thunder dominated with a 29-point blowout, and in game 2 the Lakers played great basketball, but only for 46 minutes. This obviously lead the Lakers to be a little pissed off, and really wanting to come out fire in game 3. The main thing the Lakers did well in game 2… Continue reading
