Following the Thunder’s loss in the Finals, Kevin Durant openly expressed his feelings:
“It hurts. It hurts, man. We’re all brothers on this team. It just hurts to go out like this.

We can only imagine what the Thunder must have been feeling after losing in the Finals but with fans like this, it should help ease the pain.
Are these the best fans in the NBA?
