The Oklahoma City Thunder have managed to build a large and vocal fanbase very quickly. They are so proud of this that they've adopted the nickname 'Loud City' and have managed to get lots of fans and media to talk about how loud their building is. Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat played (and lost) in said loud building on Tuesday night, but Bosh didn't think the crowd noise was a big deal.
"Everybody keeps talking about how loud it is," Bosh said. "It's regular. We've been in a lot of other arenas and it's about the same. Once it gets really loud, it's all about the same."
This might come off as a nice piece of trolling on Bosh's part, but he's probably telling the truth. At a certain point, loud is loud. It doesn't matter if Oklahoma City has the 'loudest' fans if even the 11th loudest building in the NBA is so loud that players can't hear each other on the court.
