I’m ashamed it took me so long to play this clip.
Because when I did, the video gave me goose bumps and sped my heart rate.
It’s unbelievable how much has been done to the Ford Center in such little time — and how much more will be done a year from now. I’ve seen every NBA arena with the exception of Charlotte’s (on tap for March 17) and can say unequivocally that the Thunder’s home digs will indeed be one of the best venues in the league when the drills stop drilling and the hammers finish hammering.
Nationally, it might seem like no big deal. But for Oklahoma natives and folks like me who grew up here, the development taking place throughout the city is really an amazing sight. So much has changed over the past 10 years. The Ford Center project is just one small example.
