That is an awesome Spanish custom.
"I think Oklahoma City has the best players in the NBA," said Thunder fan Jason Morton. "It's really neat to see that they're so into what we're doing in the stands that they would dress all the same like that. It may seem like a little thing, but it means a lot."
Thunder forward Kevin Durant says the team thought of the gesture before the game.
"We were in the locker room and these white uniforms were hanging in our lockers," said Durant. "We thought: 'You know what? We should all wear these tonight for the fans. It will look cool.' And it did."
"The uniforms were also free," said point guard Russell Westbrook. "You can't beat a free uniform. I'm sure if was on all of us to wear the right uniform, someone would have forgotten and Serge Ibaka would have ruined the look by playing in an old Raptors jersey or something. But the fact that these white ones were provided made it all possible. So I want to thank whoever did that. I'm going to keep this uniform forever."
The NBA should just give the Thunder to Seattle because Oklahomans are acting kind of dickish.

She had to get them big to cover her Supersonics tattoos.
"I don't care too much about fashion or how things look," said Durant, of the fanny pack he has been wearing in recent games. "I just want my clothing and accessories to be comfortable and useful," he added, unzipping his fanny pack to get some chapstick.
Durant's in-game fanny pack in which he carries tissues, mints, aspirin, his cell phone, wallet, a Swiss army knife, pen and notepad, and a pocket-size book of Sudoku puzzles has been the talk of the league since he began wearing it last week. The pack, an item most often used by uncool, middle-aged dads, has also forced the NBA to contemplate banning their use during games.
"We never listed fanny packs in the uniform code because we couldn't conceive of there being an NBA player so uncool to even consider wearing one," said NBA commissioner David Stern. "Even I don't wear a fanny pack when I take my grand kids to the zoo and look at me! I'm probably one of the lamest people there is."
