Five Good Reasons to Hate the Oklahoma City Thunder

Categories: Sports
3. Anti-Gay Owners
If Bennett and McClendon were merely über-rich energy tycoons with a sick sense of humor and zero sense of loyalty, we might forgive them. But the fact is that they are über bigots, too.

First, McClendon gave $250,000 to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth to suckerpunch John Kerry's bid for president in 2004. Then he donated more than half a million dollars to a group called Americans United to Preserve Marriage, which argues that gay couples "flout marriage by using it for their own political agenda (and) cheapen the institution."

With zombies, road-side masturbators, and mutant mosquitoes on the loose, South Floridians have plenty of things to be afraid of. But gay marriage isn't one of them. Join the 21st century, Oklahoma.

Mmmm... taste the mercury! Thanks Jim.
2. Oklahoma Is Trying to Kill Us
Oklahoma isn't just ignorant, it's dangerous. Well, maybe not all of Oklahoma, but its politicians. For the past week, Senator Jim Inhofe has been desperately trying to kill a regulation limiting the amount of mercury and other toxic chemicals that can be emitted from power plants. And you thought Rick Scott was dangerous.

The state's other senator, Tom Coburn, once protested against the airing of Schindler's List. He accused NBC of dragging television "to an all-time low, with full-frontal nudity, violence and profanity." He also accused the network of "irresponsible sexual behavior," adding, "I cringe when I realize that there were children all across this nation watching this program."

Dude, it's about the Holocaust.

1. Russell Westbrook's Outfits Make Our Eyes Bleed
If all else fails to convince you to hate the Oklahoma City Thunder, consider this: Russell Westbrook's outfits are scientifically guaranteed to give you eyeball cancer. The same could be said about Dwayne Wade's pink pants, but we chalk that up to a one-off bad decision. Westbrook, however, has a whole wardrobe of hideous shirts. Now he's claiming that he invented the whole designer-glasses-without-lenses thing. Maybe the lenses committed suicide after seeing his outfit.

How are these valid reasons? They have nothing to do with the team itself....

Get a life, instead of nitpicking stuff that doesn't even have to do with the team

This article is a waste of time in every way possible. Frankly though, to put Westbrook as your # 1 reason for hating the Thunder absolutely discredits the author and the effect is lost.

"With zombies, road-side masturbators, and mutant mosquitoes on the loose, South Floridians have plenty of things to be afraid of. But gay marriage isn't one of them. Join the 21st century, Oklahoma." Uhm, there is no way in hell gay marriage will ever become legal in Florida.  Get with the 21st century Mr Miller.

Bennett took them to Cattlemen's Restaurant and it's famous for their "lamb fries" and past presidents have gone there to eat.  I personally don't like them but it's a matter of taste.  Then the anti-gay stuff does not speak for all Oklahomans only for some.  Their are a few moderates and liberals in the state.  Westbrook wears those outfits because he knows they are ridiculous.  I think you are missing the point on that one. Seattle also had the lowest attendance in the nba or the near the top for about 20 years.  They didn't really appreciate it until it was the team was gone.  I know their are a few fans that stuck with them through out the years so I am sympathetic towards them. I wouldn't be surprised to see a new franchise come out of Seattle in the next 15 years or less.

I actually felt for the "fans" of Miami at one time.. thought maybe they got the short end of the stick and that a lot of the beatings they received nationally were unfounded, just like the hell OKC fans catch from the old regime for pulling for a team that was somehow "stolen" from Seattle was completely unwarranted as they as fans had zero to do with the move or the situation surrounding it .. however after reading this sorry excuse for an article, posted by a "Miami Fan" if there even is such a thing, i'm now certain that all the hate thrown the way of that city and its supposed "Heat Faithful" is not just warranted, but more then likely downplayed.. "5 reason to hate Oklahoma", really?.. what a life this guy must have.. we as a state are one of the few fighting openly for clean energy, have built several of the largest wind farms in the nation courtesy of Boone Pickens an Oklahoma State graduate.. most of us are very open minded and not bigots in any way nor is most of the state anti-gay, as it was pointed out only 6 states currently allow gay marriage (would you call the other 46 bigots as well?).. lamb fries or calf fries with a side of cream gravy and some onion rings are perhaps one of the best down home dishes you'll find anywhere, try having an open mind.. and Russel Westbrook can wear whatever he chooses so long as he continues to dice up Miami's sad excuse for a defense game in and out without proclaiming himself the next coming (cough cough, Lebron James).. get a life Miller, and Thunder Up!!. now i'm done with this page

Oh, I forget Rubio, your lovely senator would-be vice presidential candidate.  The Tea Party avenger.  Lovely....lovely....representative for the state of Florida.  He'd give Coburn a run for his money in the fanaticism.   Yeah, root against the Heat.  Florida has Rubio.

Give me any billionaire owner and I'll show you someone who supports the Republicans, Miami included.  We wouldn't have had that god awful George Bush in the White House to put two wars on a credit card if it weren't for hanging chads and the lovely election crew of Florida.   Do you *really* want to go there when it comes to basketball?  Shall we blame the Heat for that? 200 million surplus to 200 billion deficit.   All billionaires are worthless scum.  It's a given.   Yeah, Tom Coburn's a dick, but he's not the Thunder either.
