Fans Greet The Thunder At Airport

by Darnell Mayberry Published: May 10, 2011

After a gritty and prehaps series-saving 133-123 triple overtime win at Memphis in Game 4, the Thunder flew back to Oklahoma City in the wee hours of the morning and were welcomed by a pleasant surprise upon arrival.

This is why Thunder fans are considered by many throughout the NBA to be the league’s best. It’s 3:30 in the morning. Tuesday morning and the prospect of a grueling workday was an afterthought. These cheers still were as boisterous as they would have been inside the Oklahoma City Arena after the final buzzer. Nothing was stopping these fans from showing their support for their team’s role in an instant classic.

That’s what makes Oklahoma City Thunder fans special. They’re supportive. They’re passionate. They’re loyal.

The Grizzlies might be about to walk into a buzzsaw in Game 5.
