We all know that the NBA has a global following, but it’s still something very special to see Oklahoma City and the Thunder represented around the world.
But then there’s this photo, and you know you’re a true Thunder fan if it takes you a minute to look around and realize where it was taken:
Tulsa residents Mike and Robin Cescon, on vacation in Paris, had just finished gazing upon the “Mona Lisa” when they spotted another familiar icon. This young man, wearing a Kevin Durant jersey, walked past them on his way to see da Vinci’s masterpiece. Mike wrote:
I was walking away from Mona and saw this kid walking toward me, and I had no idea if he spoke English or not. I said, “So are they going to beat the Spurs?” His reply was “Absolutely” in perfect English …
How can the Thunder lose with Mona smiling upon them?
I guess Mike, Robin and the young man will all be shouting “Allons Thunder!” tonight.
