I am a huge Thunder fan. I've been intensely following the team since they announced the move. I've always been a huge NBA fan, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma, so I never had a team I felt was my own. I grew up when Jordan was at his height, I of course loved the Bulls then. After he retired I had no reason to like the Bulls. I kind of went for Dallas because of the vicinity and Dirk. But, never really fell in love. When OKC got the Hornets I was very excited. I followed the team with a casual passion only. I was a fan, but I never felt I could truly get invested into a team that for sure was not staying in the city. Regardless of how it happened, it happened, the Sonics landed in OKC. I do feel sorry for those fans, but that is not going to make me stop loving the team.

I really like other sports, but I use this profile for WelcomeToLoudCity.com, the Thunder fan blog, for the most part.

Recap of Tulsa 66ers vs Iowa Energy. The kid drafted out of high school had himself a pretty good game.

NBA All-Star voting

You can already start voting for the NBA All-Star team. No surprise, Durant is listed. But, so is Jeff Green and Westbrook. You have to create a login ID to vote, shouldn't take too long. So go vote. Got to give credit to BDL

Stumbled across this at our friend site Ridiculous Upside, I'm sure we can all agree that this is no surprise.

KD #6 on Bill Simmions most interesting people of the NBA

6. Kevin Durant "Prediction No. 1: Your 2009-10 scoring champ. Prediction No. 2: Lots of "The NBA's Hottest Young Superstar!" national stories. Prediction No. 3: With 10 days to go, the Zombies will be fighting for the eighth playoff spot as everyone says, "Wait, are they going to make the playoffs?" Not a prediction, but definitely in play: Twenty-nine-plus points and eight rebounds per game, with 50-40-90 averages for FG/3FG/FT. Last guy who did it? The Basketball Jesus. (In other words, hold on to your seats. You're about to go on a ride.)"

Thunder's Award Predictions

Lots of controversy on this film from multiple WTLC articles/FanPost. Figured some may want to see what the buzz is about.

Seattle, I just found you a team, you're welcome.

JE Skeets over on Yahoo!Sports posted on his blog today a story about Sacramento possibly losing the team because the arena is not up to par. Sound familiar? The team's pretty bad right now, but...

Nick Collison shows that Jim Traber is a loudmouth idiot

Big war between radio host Jim Traber against Nick Collison. Jim exaggerates the fact Nick likes Seattle. Really just a little ridiculous.

Kevin Durant's new commercial/video. Some are saying he's going to be better than Lebron, well here's his first step off the court. If you're not keen on watching the entire thing go to the 57 mark to see him actually rap, petty funny stuff.

Top assist from 2009. Thunder made it on the countdown at number 4! Earl 'No-longer-employed-by-OKC' Watson to Jeff 'Uncle' Green. Hopefully we will see RW0 on this vid next year.

APB for Josh Heytfelt

Can anyone tell me where Josh Heytfelt signed? Feel like this guy could be a Brad Miller-type. Most mock drafts had him going somewhere in the second round.

Will Rubio want to play in OKC? Mock Draft

Another mock draft on ESPN. Notice the first line on the Thunder's 3rd pick, "...Rubio wouldn't object to being in Oklahoma City." So, whats the real story will he play here or won't he?

A candid and funny vid of the Thunder Big Three, it was on the ESPN front page! There is also an article on how the team is up-and-coming, but you have to be a paid subscriber to read it.

If no Griffin then who?

Griffin will be the number one pick. And law of probability says we will not have that pick. So, then who do any of you think would be the best bet after that? I used to think Thebeet, but after...
