Oklahoma City Thunder head coach Scott Brooks paid a visit to Tulsa on Monday, March 8, to take a first-hand look at three of his players (Byron Mullens, Kyle Weaver, and DJ White) in action for the Tulsa 66ers.

Kevin Henry: After watching the game tonight (a Tulsa win over Fort Wayne), what were your overall impressions?
