Oklahoma City has made the Finals and won their first Finals game only fours years into existing in Oklahoma.
I know a lot of Jazz fans LOVE the Thunder. I have never seen any other team elicit so much love from Jazz fans aside from our Jazz. Its something I don’t understand, I as a Jazz fan can’t LOVE any other team. My heart won’t allow it.
I am actually rooting for the Heat. I have always rooted for them when they play other teams. I have family in Miami and its like a second home to me. I am NOT a Heat fan but if I have to chose between the Thunder and the Heat I chose the Heat.
This tweet caught my attention today:
.@sportsguy33 “With the possible exception of Portland, no NBA team (OKC) means more to its city.”http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/8047976/thunder-family-values@utahjazz
Do you agree do the Thunder and the Blazers mean more to OKC and Portland than our Utah Jazz mean to us?
I have to disagree with Bill Simmons (it isn’t the first time and it won’t be the last time). We have supported our team since they came to Utah over 30 years ago. We have been there through the good times and the bad. OKC has only had their team for four years, only one of those years they didn’t make they didn’t make the playoffs. Where was all the support for the Blazers during the Jail Blazers years?
