OETA’s Emmy Award-winning documentary series “Stateline” examines the impact the Oklahoma City Thunder NBA basketball team has had on business, state pride and Oklahoma’s state image at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14.
Details on the program, provided by OETA, are as follows:
A state once divided into red and orange now radiates Thunder blue. The team’s all-star roster led by Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, their subsequent rise in the NBA standings and an appearance in the finals is the most visible facet of Oklahoma City’s arrival on the world stage.
It’s all sparked by the Thunder fans’ passionate support, and fueled by the team’s commitment to their new home. With an obvious boost to the state economy and the satisfaction of being perceived as a growing, unified community on the way up, “Stateline” reveals how Oklahoma is enjoying this “Thunder Boom.”
