From The Denver Post sports columnist Mark Kiszla, who visited Durant, Okla., recently and wrote about the Thunder’s impact on Oklahoma:

The state of Oklahoma has wrapped its arms around its fresh, young NBA franchise. Believe it or not, the love of Thunder might be a more crucial element in this first-round playoff series than a bushel of missed free throws clanked by the Nuggets.

For the Thunder, winning basketball games is not only an affair of the heart, but a community service for Oklahoma City, a proud, old cattle town desperately trying to prove it’s more than a rest stop on the way to Dallas.
