Fifty Feels Fantastic

Congrats to my protege carbert for carrying our website through some very tough days and the first ten games. I hoped for better news in our 50th post, but the Rockets had other ideas in a 100-89 Oklahoma City loss. Not to dwell too much on yet another defeat, I give you multiple reasons why the Thunder still offer hope.

1. OKC's fan base will be even louder when the team starts winning
2. Kevin Durant
3. Plenty of cap space for upcoming years
4. Russell Westbrook
5. Only having to play Houston one more time
6. Jeff Green's potential
7. A very high draft pick next year
8. Joe Smith as trade-bait
9. The East is getting better, which offers some hope to OKC in the West
10. Earl Watson for showing Westbrook the ropes
11. Just think how good the team will be with a 3-point shooter
12. GM Sam Presti's future ability to make a deal (maybe for said shooter)
13. Unlucky nothing -- only one way for the Thunder to go from here
14. Speedy recoveries to Chris Wilcox and D.J. White
15. Adding a big-man who can score in the draft (hint, hint, hint)
16. Desmond Mason again able to provide a boost off the bench
17. Hoping for a Blake Griffin sighting at the Ford Center
18. Johan Petro and Robert Swift for coming out of nowhere
19. Convincing Griffin to come out early to keep playing in Oklahoma
20. Nick Collison's energy
21. Unveiling a mascot in the near future
22. Kyle Weaver and Steven Hill getting experience
23. Three more games to get past Minnesota, also a one-win team
24. Damien Wilkins and Mouhamed Sene playing their way into the rotation
25. The only team with a worse scoring difference coming to town tomorrow
