OKC Thunder Fan Starts Petition to Change City Name From Durant, OK to Westbrook, OK
Just in case you thought Oklahoma City Thunder fans were over Kevin Durant leaving the team this offseason to sign with the Golden State Warriors, think again.
One OKC Thunder fan is still upset about Durant bolting for a squad that eliminated his favorite team in the playoffs a few months ago. So he took to Change.org to petition Governor Mary Fallin to have the town of Durant, OK changed to Westbrook, OK, since Russell Westbrook signed an extension to be in OKC long term a few weeks ago.
The petition reads as follows:
“Ladies and gentlemen, the great state of Oklahoma has been betrayed. As many of you know, Kevin Durant has left our state, torn out our hearts, and left our beloved Oklahoma City Thunder in depleted shape. All of this after even being offered a cabinet position for the State of Oklahoma. It is because of this heinous action that I believe the State of Oklahoma has a responsibility to change the name of the City of Durant to Westbrook, the man who is loyal, whom we believe in, and who will lead our team to glory. Yes, it is understood that the city Durant was not named after the evil Kevin Durant, but it is just another hideous reminder of what happened to our community. Support the Cause. #WestbrookOK”
