Over the past four days, no matter what I’m doing, one thought jumps into my brain every minute or so. Other than, “Has it been long enough for me to eat something again?” I mean.
Holy $%@!, the Oklahoma City Thunder are in the NBA Finals.
I know this was always part of the plan and we all acted like we knew it was eventually coming, but until the moment really was here, until Perk sealed it with a two-handed dunk, that reality still seemed like a dream. It’s different to just talk about getting to The Finals, and to actually get to The Finals.
And that’s where the Thunder are. Four wins away. Four from hanging a banner. Four from rings. Four from assured legacy. Four from Oklahoma City immortality.
