Thunder At A Glance – 05 September 2018

img_4063Nick Gallo ( interviews Abdel Nader on his experiences since becoming a member of the Thunder: “Not long after the trade this offseason that brought him to Oklahoma City, Abdel Nader made a surprise first-place showing in Paul George’s celebrity fishing event. A couple weeks later, the newest Thunder forward was standing on the pitcher’s mound Kauffman Stadium as a part of the Thunder Night at the Kansas City Royals. Neither angling nor baseball are passions of Nader – he’s more of a soccer guy – but the newcomer small forward is doing all he can to jump into this Oklahoma City Thunder experience headfirst.”

The Thunder announces it’s 2nd annual technology partnership with eight entrepreneurial start ups around OKC: “The program provides free space, resources, corporate perks and an impressive mentor network from in and out of state business leaders, investors and influencers. At the end of the 12-week program, the founders will have an opportunity to present their plans to the investment and business community in Oklahoma and across the U.S.”

If there is anyone that can twist hair in the OKC/Edmond area, I may have a job for you:

Cody Taylor (OKC Thunder Wire) on Paul George’s support of Nike and Colin Kaepernick: “The campaign is drawing widespread criticism after Kaepernick inspired a player protest movement against racism and social injustice when he refused to stand during the national anthem two years ago. Since the movement began, several athletes from leagues across the United States have come out in support of Kaepernick, including LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, George and others.”

Andrew Joseph (For The Win) on Dennis Schroder beating LeBron James in a 3-point shooting contest: “James made a stop in Berlin as part of his international tour and took on the newly acquired Thunder point guard in a one-shot-to-win, 3-point contest for charity.”
