I liked them when they were the Seattle Supersonics, back before they went mainstream. You probably never heard of them.

James Harden

... whoopsie

I was going to post a comment incorporating the Supersonics and the fact that Harden got traded but looks like Mentat and gameshowhost have me covered.

Do you realize that the joy they bring will last until it's summertime? The season will be a long one, and the folks of OKC will be waiting for Superman to deliver a championship. Surely the December 25th Finals rematch will be Christmas at the zoo, as well as a great fight test for the team. The gash and slash style will bring them success. The Thunder's success will cause great excitement and electricity in the city, and fans will rejoice as the lightning strikes the postman, banker, and whoever else is in attendance. The eventual trip to the finals will be an epic matchup, like watching the planets collide. But no matter what happens, enjoy every game, because all we have is now.

There are hipsters in OKC? wouldnt they... leave?

I sound fat: There are hipsters in OKC? wouldnt they... leave?


Every moderately sized city has hipsters. It's almost like how every city over like, 150,000 has gangs. I mean think about it: Topeka, Kansas probably has a gang problem. There's a group of misled youths out there who are hard core Topeka thugs. Anyway. OKC is trying to be cool. They're doing a better job lately, but yeah, they're still Oklahoma and there's still far too much camouflage & Boomer Sooner.

I know right? There's so much more we should spend time talking about in Sports right now. Because we've got football and...well nothing else worth discussing but basketball, but damnit it's thug ball!

Football players clearly have the moral high ground over basketball players. Clearly.

I was just going to ask if one of the things Oklahoma hipsters do is ironic takes on redneck culture, and now I know the answer is yes.

I actually sort of approve.

No thanks. I'll be across the street watching the real men play a sport where light touching isn't a penalty.

Lol, thanks, I didn't understand until your addition; even though I've heard that Do You Realize song a few times.
