Dr. Eric Friedman has been a Season Ticket Member since the Thunder’s inaugural season. During the first season of Thunder Basketball Dr. Friedman bought a couple pairs of Kevin Durant shoes; since then, he has made a hobby out of collecting Thunder shoes. He currently has 40 Kevin Durant shoes, five Russell Westbrook shoes and one pair of Thunder shoes. His favorite pair is the KD IV (“Year of the Dragon” edition). He makes it a goal to wear as many different pairs of shoes as possible during games throughout the season.

The moment when the lights get turned down at Chesapeake Energy Arena for the Thunder's starting lineups is one of sheer joy, excitement and intensity. It’s a special feeling for both the crowd in Oklahoma City and for the Thunder players getting set to tip off in one of the best home environments in the NBA. After playing five straight games on the road, the Thunder is full of anticipation to once again be received in deafening fashion by their hometown crowd.

OKLAHOMA CITY, April 23, 2012 – James Harden continued to undergo tests today in Oklahoma City that followed NBA protocol for the concussion he suffered in yesterday’s contest against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Harden participated in a series of limited activities per NBA guidelines, but has additional steps that must be taken under the league-mandated concussion policy before he can make his return to the court.

He will be re-evaluated tomorrow and is currently listed as day-to-day.
