The Oklahoma City Thunder is back home after losing Game five of the Western Conference Finals against San Antonio.

Win or lose, Thunder fans still showed up to support the players and coaches at Will Rogers World Airport at about 1 a.m. Friday, including Thunder fan Brittany Gontce.

Gontce actually paints several amazing pictures of the Thunder players, including one of Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook took the time to come over to fans and give autographs. He signed Gontce's painting right through the fence.

"It's just cool, because it took so long and we were like excited like when I finished it, and now that it's been signed, it's pretty cool," Gontce said.

Gontce said the painting started as a high school project and it took her about a whole year to finish. She said she might keep the painting signed by Westbrook, or sell it to raise money for a school fundraiser.
