Game 5 vs Spurs approaches and there is one young Thunder fan here in San Antonio who won’t be at the game, but will be cheering on his team. 12-year old Joey Ryan of Edmond is at Children’s Hospital in San Antonio where he recently underwent open heart surgery. Always the Thunder fan, Joey walked into the hospital clad in his Kevin Durant jersey.
His dad tells us Joey took some good-natured ribbing from all of the docs, nurses and staff who are Spurs fans. He was especially proud to deck out his hospital room with a Thunder flag and Thunder gear. Joey, we wish you a speedy recovey. As you root for the Thunder, know that we’re rooting for you!
Joey is now home in Edmond and doing well. He left the hospital in San Antonio, still in full Thunder gear.
