Awww that is so sad.
I feel a WORLD of cockiness coming from Bron now.
Anyone else feel so?
But on the positive,
Oklahoma showed the FUCK out at that airport to support…
More than 4,000 Oklahoma City Thunder fans found their way to Will Rogers Airport Friday afternoon to welcome their team home.
The team landed in Oklahoma City around 2 p.m. and made its way to a temporary stage where several players addressed the crowd.
“I just want to say thank you for all the support that you guys give us year in and year out, every single game,” said Thunder guard James Harden.
“I don’t think any other NBA team has the support that we have and that means a lot to us.”
Kevin Durant also addressed the crowd and said the players were looking forward to seeing the crowd.
“Last night was one of the toughest times we’ve had as a group,” Durant said. “But we knew we’d get to see you guys in the morning.”
Other players to address the crowd included Derek Fisher, Thabo Sefolosha, Russell Westbrook, Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka.
“When I played in Boston for eight years, I thought they had the best fans,” Perkins said.
“After I came to OKC, now I really know what it’s like to have the best fans in the world.”
Fans from all over the state crowded around temporary fences as the players and Coach Scott Brooks each took turns with the microphone.
“I’m here to support the Thunder,” said Oklahoma City resident Ken Karns. “They did a great job. We’re real proud of them.”
The Miami Heat defeated the Thunder in Game 5 of the NBA Finals to win the 2012 NBA Championship, but players pledged to be back in the Finals next season.
“Next year we’re going to be back in this situation and we’re going to bring you guys a championship,” said Harden.
