Do you guys root for the Thunder?

  • Honestly loved watching Durant play with us so I've been following the Thunder ever since. After all, they really do belong to us. OKC is a great city for basketball though and their fans are almost good as ours.

    A perfectly weighted pass from Gerrard.

    Yes, I watch the Thunder. Watching them right now.

    For the record I know that he does and was responding to the OP, I stated my opinion afterac knowledgeing Peaches as a fan.

  • I love Ibaka. Have a love/hate relationship with Westbrook, I think he's a selfish player and the Thunder might be better off with a different point guard, but I love watching him play. Hate Kendrick Perkins with a passion. Am meh on Durant. I acknowledge him as a great player, and seems to be a great dude off the court, just his style of play doesnt really excite me. (i'm sure that would be different if my blazers had drafted him rather than Oden).

    Overall I hate the Thunder, but its probably mostly out of jealousy. Has nothing to do with them leaving Seattle in my case.

  • I root for the Thunder. Im over viewing them as the former Sonics. The NBA has lost alot of luster, emotion for me now that the Sonics are gone. So as a fan of basketball itself, the Thunder are the most enjoyable team to watch, and KD its most refreshing player. I understand the hypocrisy in that (They are the damn Sonics ffs!) but even if/when we get the Sonics back, that will still be some other cities team for awhile.

  • F No!! I hate them infinitely more than I have ever hated any other team. Clay Bennett can never win a championship. Never. If he gets any closer, I just might go Tanya Harding on Durant. If I ever have to see that POS hoist a championship trophy, I will be pissed off for a decade. I'm turning red just f'n thinking about it. How anyone who was a Sonics fan could ever root for that lying piece of garbage is something I will never be able to comprehend. The Sonics were my favorite pro sports team. Could any of you root for an NFL team in LA if their owner came to Seattle and conned everybody and stole the Seahawks?

  • lol I don't know if it felt like the Hawks winning the title, but I was rooting for Lebron really damn hard so I was excited, about as excited as I'd be to see The Sounders win it all in the MLS (which would be really excited but not die hard excited), but I was pretty damn relieved they lost, felt like I dodged a bullet.

  • They get enough love across the country, so I am sure they don't need me on the bandwagon. I don't spend time sticking pins in a voodoo doll but hell will have to freeze over before I would pull for them. Having had a few ex-wives I know how to compartmentalize my disappointment. Best of luck to them.

    Too bad they didn't get a chance to have Wally Walker be their GM. I am sure they would have several more centers drafted to the team. Would have been special.

  • Thuck the Funder. The fact that Seattle fans should be able to have a team that can make it to the finals, year in and year out, makes it worse. Even if we get the Kings, we are still going to be garbage for years. It's BS. Glad they lost in the finals, made me sick that I had to root for the Heat.

    I would let the Thunder win 3 titles if it meant my Seahawks could win one Super Bowl (if such a correlation could be created through the karmic laws of sports metaphysics). Feeling any other way means you should be on another board.

  • I still watch a lot of basketball... But i was in the bars every thunder game last years playoffs and celebrated wildly when the heat pulled it off.

    I love KD... Hard not to, but i hope he never wins one with Okc.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • Saw on the news last night I think it was Chris Egan had caught up to Clay Bennett and asked him about how he feels about the City of Seattle, look on his face did not match the words out of his mouth but suffice it to say he said Seattle is a good city and he enjoys it when he comes here. Then asked about getting a basketball team he responded with Seattle has been a great supporter of the NBA.

    I wanted to vomit truly as the stoic look never left his face while saying that stuff and knowing he was the one that created a lame duck team to kill fan support as much as he could to steal away to OKC.

    As far as the NONSENSE comment, supporting the Thunder is nothing short of going to a party and waking up in bed with your wifes sister somehow and the feeling of being a betrayer to your wife and feeling dirty and like scum.

    As far as the NONSENSE comment, supporting the Thunder is nothing short of going to a party and waking up in bed with your wifes sister somehow and the feeling of being a betrayer to your wife and feeling dirty and like scum.


    hold on... is your wifes sister hot?


    Well my 1st wife had 4 sisters, 3 out of 4 of them would have been a definate temptation if one lost their sense of morality.

  • Absolutely not. I despise the team, but not the players.

  • My question is, who is gonna be there the night next season when the Thunder return to Seattle and booing the holy hell out of that team with me during introductions? Maybe everytime they make a shot too?
