Here is a photo of the front page from the Tri-City Herald in Kennewick, Washington. It seems that they are extremely excited about the Oklahoma City Thunder winning the Western Conference. Yeah, I think it is safe to say they are still smarting over the SuperSonics leaving town after Kevin Durant’s rookie season. Blame Starbucks. H/T [...]
