A Thunder Jersey … in Jersey

William Gonzalez has lived most of his life in New Jersey, but the 45-year-old husband and father of three is hardly a stereotypical Jersey boy. He doesn’t consider himself much of a Bruce Springsteen fan, and he has little interest in the kids of TV’s “Jersey Shore.”

And when it comes to NBA Basketball, William is all about the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“I'm counting down the days till Opening Night against the Bulls,” he said.

“I think what Sam Presti and Scott Brooks have done with this organization is incredible. I have never been to Oklahoma, but I hope to go one day. Just watching the love that the fans showed during the playoffs was unreal. I wanted so bad to be there to experience it firsthand. The fans in Oklahoma City are like no other in the NBA.”

Thunder mania might be spreading in the Garden State, according to William.

“Many friends have told me that they watch the Thunder just because they are so exciting and they have so much energy,” he said.

From New Jersey to New Guinea, Thunder fans can be found at THUNDERALLY, the online, interactive community devoted to the Thunder faithful.
