Oklahoma City Reacts

TrueHoop reader John e-mails from Oklahoma City, where word is starting to spread that the Thunder have just acquired Tyson Chandler:

I literally heard about this trade a few minutes ago walking back from Subway to my office in downtown Oklahoma City. Someone I didn't know turned to me and said, "are you a basketball fan?"

I replied that I was and he told me about the trade and we high-fived.

That's how awesome this is from our perspective. People who don't know each other are celebrating together in the street. Whatever his talents as a GM might be, Presti has the fans of a 13-40 team excited and hopeful for the future.
