Let’s go back in time, just a couple of years. Let’s pretend Kevin Durant went No. 1 overall in the 2007 NBA Draft. Let’s pretend Durant was playing for the Portland Trailblazers and part of the real, best young team in the NBA.

Oklahoma City claims to be the best young team in the NBA, but in fact the Blazers are. The Blazers have the youngest team in the NBA and they also made the playoffs.

OKC won just 23 games in their first ever season and had a pitiful 18 sell outs. On the other hand, we won a lot more than that, dominated them in the regular season and we also sold out every single game. Like a real NBA city.

Plus Durant even said Oklahoma City isn’t a real NBA city, he said Seattle was.

So, Mr. Durant if you are reading this, please consider fixing the mistake that happened on draft day a couple years ago, let’s get you in the black and red, get you into a city with a real fan base and win some championships.

You, Roy, Aldridge would mean complete domination for the next 10 years.

How can you turn that down?

Real city or the middle of nowhere?

Make the right choice.
