6. Anything else you care to share? Became a fan when the Sonics drafted KD, followed him at Texas because his teammate Damion James went to a local high school in my area. I've really loved watching the team grow and blossom the past few seasons.
I am considering being an Thunder fan. But I am not sure if I am ready. I use to be a fan a long time ago, but they weren't thunder then. I think I stopped watching when the year they became thunder.
I remember the old days, Gary Payton, Hersey Hawkins and Shawn Kemp, those were good times. The Sonics lost to Bulls the year before Jazz lost twice! But that was an amazing different team, I know, I went to the games in Utah when they won the Western Conference.
But apparently Thunder fans don't want nothing to do with Sonics. I understand, its not like when Minneapolis moved to Los Angeles, then kept their name Lakers(If LA didn't want their history they would have change the name). When they chose Thunder, they didn't want the history that came with the old name, even if their star player was part of that history.
I don't know if I want to be part of that, cause I liked the Sonics, even if they were sold away from the old owners, changed cities, and changed its named(and kept a few players and staff(not sure if any staff is the same now)).
Thunder is cool and a great team, but I think I will only root for them if they face Miami in the Finals again. I got LP, so I will watch them, but I have only found a few things I like about their whole package.
Then the winning started lol, now im being called a bandwagon every time i mention my favorite team, looking back to 07 i had to hide my team because of how bad they were LOL how the times have changed. But my advice and how i go about it is this, i love basketball entirely to much to just up and not root for anyone so i root for the thunder im a fan and i want durant to get as many rings as his little heart can manage but if the sonics ever come back then im a seattle fan 1st a durant fan 2nd and an OKC supporter as long as they're not playing us and if you've gone as far as considering it you might as well drink the kool-aid lol hopefully my rant was helpful
