Thunder Rumblings


Thunder players show up at random shops across the community, surprise fans with gift cards

Throughout the year, the Thunder does a ton of work out in the community, helping families in need and visiting fans all over the metro.

On Saturday, they made a whole day of it, dropping by different shops across Oklahoma City in what the franchise is calling the Thunder Acts of Kindness.

And the team’s official Instagram account chronicled the event. Let’s check it out:

-Here is Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Durant showing up at a Love’s store, working the checkout counter and handing out gift cards:

-And here’s Perkins taking over the intercom with a deep voice that seems only natural for this kind of job:

-Here’s Nick Collison and Russell Westbrook at a local Sport Clips. Free haircuts and pictures for everybody:

-The next stop is at a McDonald’s in Edmond, where Serge Ibaka and Andre Roberson handed out free meals and served as the fast food window attendants. Got to be pretty random when you roll up and Serge Ibaka’s handing you your McChicken.

-The final stop is at Bob Moore Kia, where Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones brought customers news of free oil changes and, apparently, helped this couple take home its new Kia:

Cool stuff.
