Several Thunder players were in attendance as the organization put together a visit to the zoo: “The caped players made their next stop at Aquaticus, which showcases more than 1,500 marine life creatures from around the world. Piper emerged from the waters to wave hello at her tall guests setting the tone for a mutual admiration society. During the rendezvous, hearts melted and cheers erupted when each player took turns hugging the affable sea lion. Piper and the players officially cemented their friendship with each wet embrace.”
Several other Thunder players went to the fair to get their cheat meal on: “After all, it was the right day of the week for his socks, a true “Taco Tuesday”. But as his teammate Andre Roberson made a bee-line for the deep fried oreos upon arrival at the State Fair, Patterson eye was drawn to a different delicacy – the donut burger. It’s not the healthiest option at the Fair, though there’s not much competition in that department. After an intense voluntary workout at the practice facility, however, Patterson and his teammates Roberson, Jerami Grant and Doug McDermott all deserved a fun cheat meal and afternoon of games out on the west side of town.”
Oh, Steven. Never change, mate.
Enes Kanter continues in on Durant: “Well, I’m not angry. It’s just really sad,” Thunder center Enes Kanter told Andrew Bogusch. “I remember when he was here – I played with him one-and-a-half years – and when he was here, this organization and these fans, this whole state, gave him everything he asked for, everything he wanted. The cooks, the chefs, the massage therapists, the coaches, players – everything – just (to make) sure he is okay and getting what he wanted to get.”
An update on Alex Abrines’ knee injury: “Abrines hyperextended his right knee playing for his native Spain in FIBA EuroBasket. And though he was held him out of the rest of the tournament in part at the Thunder’s request, according to an earlier report from Spanish website MARCA, Abrines said the injury’s effects didn’t linger long. “I didn’t feel pain at all after the first day,” he said Wednesday during a Thunder Cares visit to the Oklahoma City Zoo. “But the MRI said I had a bone bruise, so that’s what keeps me (off) of the court.”
