Following tonight’s game against Denver, the Thunder hits the road for a six-game stretch, with 15 days in between games at Chesapeake Energy Arena. To help you get your Thunder fix, take a look at a few stories that you might have missed from the last few weeks …
1. Rumble shows his best side to the camera as he helps kick off the 2012 Sandridge Santa Run:
2. After KD checked in on their great-grandmother when he accidentally hit her with the ball and gave her a kiss during a November game, the Liddell family made up special T-shirts to mark the occasion. All 33 of Jean Liddell’s great-grandchildren got a “KD Kissed My MaMa” T-shirt for Christmas:
3. Thunder fan Mary Rowe sent us this video of her four-year-old grandson, who can not only dribble up a storm, but he can also recite the Thunder lineup (in jersey-number order).
4. The Thunder helped grant a wish for Cody Metz, a Minnesota team who worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to make his dream of traveling with the Timberwolves to a road game a reality. We arranged for Cody to watch pregame warm-ups and meet the Thunder Girls and some Thunder players. We also sent him home with some Thunder gear; Cody also is a big Thunder fan. We were so happy to work with our NBA Family to make this young man’s wish come true:
