“This was an opportunity to see a community come together again,” Moore Mayor Glenn Lewis said. “I think that this was one of the most important things I've seen since I was mayor.”

The special also looked at the Thunder's rise to becoming one of the league's top teams and its unique team unity.

Star forward Kevin Durant credited the team's philosophy of “just bringing in guys that put the team first.”

“As the days add up and the years add up you start to building something special,” forward Nick Collison said.

The program also discusses how the team's success has unified Oklahoma sports fans often divided by college allegiances.
