What a difference a decade makes. Who would have dreamed ten years ago that Oklahoma City would be transformed from an AAA town into a Big League City?
A state once divided into red and orange now radiates Thunder blue. The team's rise in the NBA standings and an appearance in the finals is the most visible facet of Oklahoma City’s arrival on the world stage.
OETA’s award winning documentary series Stateline takes a look at the impact the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball franchise has had on business, state pride and our state image. It’s all sparked by the Thunder fans’ passionate support, and fueled by the team’s commitment to their new home. With an obvious boost to the state economy and the satisfaction of being perceived as a growing, unified community on the way up, Oklahoma is enjoying this Thunder Boom.
