STM Profile - Allene Bottom

Allene Bottom was an NBA fan long before she moved back to Oklahoma with her husband in 1981. In fact, she became an NBA fan in 1972 watching Don Nelson and the Boston Celtics get edged out by the New York Knicks for the 1972 Eastern Conference title. Allene was excited to see NBA basketball return to Oklahoma while temporarily being a host for the Hornets during their time here and even more excited to have the opportunity to become a Season Ticket Member when the Thunder came to Oklahoma.

Allene, her son Earl and family friend Brenda make the trek from Hammon for each and every Thunder home game. The nearly four-hour round trip drive doesn’t faze these avid fans. One of the best parts of the Thunder Season Ticket Member experience for Allene has been making friends and getting to know the Chesapeake Energy Arena staff. Although she has had many terrific experiences as a Season Ticket member, Allene’s favorite Thunder memory was the Thunder beating the Spurs in the 2012 Western Conference Finals.

We definitely appreciate Allene's continued support (and the amazing homemade jams she shares with us)!
