Default OKC has the best fans in the NBA.

I have never heard fans ready to give it up for their team and so quickly after a crushing loss. They were almost cheering after the game like they had won. OKC fans are all class.

Okay they are a relatively new team in a city that hasn't ever experienced playoff basketball before...If you look at any expansion franchise, fans are usually like that. Please post this thread in 5 years time when the Thunder bow out of the first round for consecutive years. Let's see how patient and tolerable their fans are then.

I actually thought about making this thread too. Those fans in Oklahoma City have a lot of class. Their effort against the Lakers was definitely something to cheer about. They can only get better from here on out.

They have some great fans but nobody takes them seriously. Seattle had better fans back in the Gary Payton in his prime days. The Thunder fans are like a high school game's fans on steroids. Nothing special really because nothing backs them up. I like them though.

First playoffs, hard fight against the best in the league, and the last shot looked good, but the ball didn't just go in. Plus they were playing the best in west in the regular season.

Pretty respectable playoff series for them.

Other then the standing ovation, they don't have much class. Don't worry though, not much fans do.

The OKC fans were very impressive. Blazer fans acted very similarly when the Suns finished them off in Portland. Even had "Let's Go Blazers" chants and a standing ovation. Anyway, the real test for OKC fans is what happens when their team isn't quite so exciting.

Yea, very impressed with them.
I'm glad we got another full crowd where almost everyone will wear the goddamn t-shirt put on the seat.

OFC fans are great. Those crowds reminded me of Warriors crowds when they beat Mavericks in 1st round.

I was at Game 4. Near the top, but an incredible atmosphere.

What are the chances we would ever see that happen here in self-conscious LA? Probably about as good as the chance the temp will dip below freezing here.

You realize that Portland did this last night, right?

Blazers were done with under a minute to go, and the crowd started a "Lets go Bla-zers" chat, then gave the team a standing ovation after the horn.
