Fan Drew Hooper loves the Oklahoma City Thunder so much, he decided to turn his car into a tribute to the team.
Hooper is an artist and told The Oklahoma he had been thinking about painting his 1996 Suzuki X-90 for a while. He says it wasn’t until he had lunch with his cousin before the playoffs began that he decided to make the move.
Inspired by the talk with his cousin, Hooper set out that day to begin his project. He says he spent about $200 in paint supplies, and then sanded down the car’s purple exterior, and spray painted it white.
The next day, he used transparencies and a projector to paint the faces on the passenger side: Kendrick Perkins, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Derek Fisher, Nick Collison, and Cole Aldrich. The following day he put Daequan Cook, Thabo Sefolosha, Russell Westbrook, and Serge Ibaka on the driver’s side.
So what do you think? If he was driving a purple Suzuki before, he certainly didn’t make the car any worse. A few pics of the car are below.

DALLAS (AP) -- Oklahoma City's Kendrick Perkins is out of Game 4 of the playoff series against Dallas because of a right hip strain.
Perkins walked gingerly back to the bench after getting called for his second foul with 4:09 left in the first quarter Saturday night. The Thunder were on defense at the time when the 6-foot-10 center made contact with another player, though it...

Something very weird is happening with this Oklahoma City Thunder team that destroyed the defending champion Dallas Mavericks and moved on to the NBA Western Conference Semifinals.

Why this convergence of porn & four-year-old franchise...
