Fan creates OKC spoof with Friends intro
The offseason if often a time for fans to overview what went right, what went wrong, and most importantly dream of what could happen the next season. For Twitter user @DonRussell_, this was a time to make a spoof of his favorite team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, using none other than the classic early 2000s TV sitcom Friends.
The video features the potential starting five of Andre Roberson, Steven Adams, Paul George, Russell Westbrook, and Alex Abrines alongside Jerami Grant with the special appearance of Roberson’s girlfriend, NBA 2KTV host Rachel DeMita — all, of course, created by general manager Sam Presti.

The video features the best (read as “worst”) moments from each player from past seasons, including Roberson’s free-throw airballs, Adams getting The Nutcracker well after Christmas, as well as a Game-7 Trevor-Ariza-like display of poor 3-point shooting by Paul George at All-Star Weekend, among other lowlights — staying true to Friends’ irreverent style of comedy.
The video fittingly ends with DeMita getting rejected into another galaxy at the Celebrity All-Star Game by Quavo of Migos — a nice touch for those familiar with DeMita’s propensity to boast her basketball side during her interviews in 2KTV.
Thunder fans might not enjoy the video all that much, but it is funny.
