Despite the Oklahoma City Thunder's tough loss to the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, loyal fans are ready to give the team an enthusiastic welcome home Friday afternoon.
The team is scheduled to arrive at Will Rogers World Airport around 1:30 p.m. An airport spokesperson says the crowd of fans is expected to be huge, so the airport has set up a special staging area.
The area is located just east of Terminal Drive on Amelia Earhart Lane. Fans will turn left at the stoplight to enter the area. They will be directed to the proper area by large electronic signs. Free parking for fans will also be provided in the area adjacent to the stage.
The airport advises fans to arrive as early as possible because parking will be limited.
