In this week’s IT OKC blog post, we’re naming the NBA playoffs as our “It” Event because it features Oklahoma’s phenomenal basketball team, the OKC Thunder!

Fans, we want to hear your stories. Leave a comment telling us about your favorite Thunder moment and you’ll be registered to win an official OKC Thunder t-shirt!

After an amazing season, the OKC Thunder battled its way in to the NBA playoffs against the LA Lakers. Wednesday night, 18,000+ fans gathered at the Chesapeake Energy Arena for game 2 of the series. Fans on Twitter who attended the playoff nail-biter live-tweeted the final moments describing them as “intense” and the crowd, “deafening.” Jen @jen983, who was glued to the game from her home in Kansas tweeted, “I might have stood up on the couch!” The Thunder won 77-75.

OKC Thunder fans are proud of their team and fiercely loyal. Especially Luke @lukedre whose fascination with the game began at a very young age. He admits, “When I was a kid I bought a book about the NBA’s best Dunkers and Shawn Kemp was in it. From then on I was a Sonics fan. That was 1995. When they moved to OKC, I moved with them.”  When asked what he likes best about the team he replied, “I love the team because they are family. The atmosphere is amazing.”

Game 3 is Friday night at the Staples Center. Let’s keep this momentum. 

UPDATE: After a loss on Friday but last-second comeback on Saturday night in LA, the THUNDER is still in it to win it! 

Game 5 is tonight, Monday 5/21/12 and the Thunder is back home at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.  THUNDER UP!
