Breakups are never easy to deal with. Some people go for the old “drown you sorrows in ice cream” or others take the “date your ex’s best friend” approach, but each dumpee has their own special coping mechanism. In the case of Thunder fans, it seems as though they are going for the old “if you can’t beat ‘em, break ‘em method.” Kevin Durant left the Thunder after spending 9 years with them previously, and the OKC faithful are very much not over the breakup yet. KD and his new boo (the Warriors) returned to Oklahoma City for the second time this season. Last time, Thunder fans dressed up as cupcakes to taunt KD for being “soft”. As you may or may not know, KD recently hyperextended his left knee, and has been out of commission. This added even more fuel to the angry Thunder fans’ fire, and left us with an epic result. A cupcake on crutches!
Thunder fans 1, KD 0. The last time the two teams met, the Warriors buried the Thunder 130-114. The Thunder faithful are hoping for a little vengeance on their former beloved superstar, and are hoping their intimidation tactics will rub-off on the rest of the Warriors. Here’s to hoping the two can solve their differences, and maybe even try “staying friends.”
