Disappointment of finals doesn't affect city's love of Thunder

It was a disappointing end to the Thunder season. No other, kinder way to say it — the Heat walked all over the Thunder in Game 5. For this year, this NBA Finals, clearly the better team won.

However, remember Thunder that your fans here in Oklahoma City love you. The love isn't diminished by the disappointment. The disappointment isn't diminished by the love, either. They're both there, but our passion for our team will still be there long after the disappointment has faded away (and that might take a while). Learn and grow. We'll be behind you all the way.
