They like us! They really like us!


Gazette staff
We don’t know if The New York Times Magazine’s Nov. 11 feature on the OKC Thunder was, as The Oklahoman reporter Steve Lackmeyer proclaimed on his blog — presumably with a stuck “caps lock” key — “THE BEST ARTICLE EVER WRITTEN ABOUT OKLAHOMA CITY IN A NATIONAL PUBLICATION.”

OKC Thunder star Kevin Durant’s movie debut hurts as much as an NBA Playoffs loss to the Miami Heat.


Harrison Lott
Editor’s note: For Thunderstruck, the new-to-home-video family comedy starring the Thunder’s Kevin Durant, it struck us that, since the movie is really aimed at pre-teen and teenaged KD fans, who better to review it than an avowed Thunder fan of that age? Here with his review is guest critic Harrison Lott, a 15-year-old student at Edmond Memorial High School.

Off-court courting


Gazette staff
Recording artist Keri Hilson, known for her sexiness and power collaborations (Nelly, R. Kelly and Kanye West), appears to be hot ’n’ heavy these days with Serge Ibaka, OKC Thunder’s power forward. A few weeks ago, Hilson celebrated her birthday in Bricktown after the Thunder’s trouncing of the Los Angeles Lakers at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
