Deanne Stein, News 9
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Saturday night it became official, the OKC Thunder will take on the Miami Heat in the NBA finals. On Sunday, fans were already out getting ready.
"Everywhere I go, every corner store, every grocery store, it's Thunder. I see Thunder," said Thunder fan Christie McGrew.
McGrew and other fans headed to tents set up around Oklahoma City where Thunderwear was in full force. Everything was on sale, from car flags and sticker to T-shirts and towels.
"It's crazy," said Jeff Aebi, a Thunder fan from Enid. "You see blue and orange all over the place, it's pretty cool to see that."
Fans showing their support for a team many believe can take it all the way.
"I think it helps them play better," said Danielle Williams, a Thunder fan. "Especially, when people are at the games cheering."
And Thunder Head Coach Scott Brooks agrees.
"The players, they love playing here, they know every night we're going to have the best crowd in the game and they are going to come out and cheer you," Coach Brooks said on Sunday. "When you don't have a great game going, they can somehow pick our guys up."
Game one of the NBA finals is scheduled for Tuesday, June 12 at the Chesapeake Arena in Oklahoma City.
