Cole to My City

Living in OKC for the past 5 years I have finally found an NBA team to actually root for instead of just watching how the Kansas boys are doing. The entire city has really fallen in with the Thunder especially after their showing this past season. They have a great nucleus and having watched every game and attended many (including the heartbreaker in the playoffs when Pau tipped shot in at buzzer to eliminate us) it became clear that we were lacking one thing. That was a true defensive center that could provide some kind of presence down low. 

The days leading up to the draft I was praying that cole somehow fell to us at 18. When the Hornets took him I was devastated. Only to have my prayers answered a couple minutes later when it was announced Cole was coming to OKC after being traded. All my buddies that I had over acted pissed and gave me crap the rest of the night just to rile me up. My phone was blowing up with people ribbing me tellin me how he was the next Greg Ostertag. I spent the rest of the night convincing everyone he was exactly what we needed. I am extremely excited to have Cole playing in OKC as I will get to see every game he plays as they are all televised here but also be able to see him play at the Ford Center where he can revive himself after the nightmares he's experienced playing there in college. Also ready to see our front line with Cole and NIck on the court at the same time. 

Now OKC just needs to give Sherron the chance to make the team and I'll be set. I can see Sherron using this as a big time motivation and making an NBA roster. Just hope he can do it along with Cole and Nick in OKC. 

Will do what I can to keep yall updated on how he is adjusting to OKC and fitting in with the team. Also will do some updates on how he is looking once the pre-season and actual games start as I will be sure not to miss a game again this season.
