Toby Keith Narrating OKC Thunder Documentary
Fri, 22 Nov 2013 11:35:39
OKC and its people prevail.
Singer-songwriter, record producer, actor and Moore, Oklahoma native Toby Keith will tell the story about the people of his hometown and the bond that was forged between the city and their hoops team the Oklahoma City Thunder after a tornado devastated the area earlier this year as NBA TV presents OKC Thunder: Heart of the City premiering tonight, Friday, November 22, at 7PM ET.
The Thunder rallied behind the people of the Sooner state in the days after a powerful tornado nearly wiped out the city of Moore in May 2013. The team, led by All-Stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, visited the city immediately, raising the spirits of the people who have become more like neighbors to the players than simply fans.
In this 30-minute NBA TV Originals special, Keith, whose mother and sister still reside in Moore, brings a personal touch to the story as he reflects on the impact the storm had on his own family and the significance of the Thunder's commitment to the community.
Demonstrating its continued support to the city months after the tornado, the team conducted a training camp practice at a high school in Moore as a sign that the Thunder would be there for the residents as they continued to get back on their feet.
Now that's a sense of community!
