→Create a fantasy team with no members of the Thunder. Talk about an exciting night at the Ford Center. If you have Chris Paul and David West this week, you’ve got a reason to cheer.
→Play Where’s Waldo in Oklahoma City with Robert Swift. Really, he’s a multi-tattooed, red-haired giant, so how hard can he be to find? Spread out around town. First one to find him wins!
→Start scouting the 2009 draft class. Save up a few bucks and send Ricky Rubio a ticket to ride on the Bricktown Canal. If that doesn’t convince the hotshot Spaniard that Oklahoma City has arrived on the world stage, what will?
→Work on your 3-point shot. Heck, get your kids to work on theirs. By the time they have it figured out, the NBA might have reworked its early entry rule.
And, perhaps, the Thunder will have won a game.
But don’t give up hope.
