This is hardly news, but you gotta love KD's attitude toward the Lakers and the rest of the league. Though I would obviously have preferred the Lakers not to have picked up Howard and Nash, I actually like the fact that the Thunder aren't considered the favorite in the West this year. This team plays well with a chip on its shoulder and something to prove. If the Lakers hadn't stepped up, going into the season, the Thunder would have been expected to get to the Finals, where they'd see if they could take the next step.  I prefer being a (slight) underdog.

I do like anger that's both public and clandestine, as well as the image of the semifinals wandering a field near the stadium.

 @duhsweetness U.S. History, long, long ago.  It went well, but ultimately wasn't very important, as history PhD programs don't usually care much about the GRE subject score (I got into, and completed, my first choice program, but I doubt my GRE subject score had anything to do with it).  The GRE subject test in history is arguably closer to a round of Jeopardy than it is to what one actually does as an historian.

 @SmackDaddy This.  I'm also an OU fan and I'd _so_ prefer an orange alt to yet another BFBS uni (that's _so_ early 2000s!).  Teams that have black as a color (White Sox, Spurs, Raiders) should have black unis. Others...not so much.

After we fell down 2-0 to the Spurs, I entirely lost hope.  Then I learned to NEVER entirely lose hope with this team.
