This act by many of the fans in Oklahoma City shows just how excited they are about the addition of one of the top forwards in the league, who will now be joining forces with the reigning MVP Russell Westbrook. It has once again given them a dynamic duo that could possibly be one of the top teams in the Western Conference next season.
What makes an even more unique is that the Thunder are the only professional team in town, making them the primary attraction for sports fans in the city.
However, it also shows much importance that the fans have placed on the acquisition of George as he could become one of the major reasons why Westbrook would decide to sign the record-breaking extension to stay with the Thunder. All in all, this is a certainly an important time for the fans in Oklahoma City.
