Oklahoma City Thunder

A close loss was followed by a rough flight for the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team early Saturday, when its chartered flight landed at Chicago's Midway International Airport with the nose of the plane caved in.

The plane touched down safely and on schedule around 1 a.m. local time, albeit not totally intact, following the Thunder's 116-119 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night in Minneapolis.

Several players immediately took to social media with photographs of the damage and to express their incredulity about the size and cause of the crater.

The Oklahoma City Thunder introduced two of their newest players to the media Tuesday.

Beginning July 1, a new fee will be implemented to all professional sports tickets sold in the state.

Oklahomans can expect this hike to affect prices on tickets for teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder, Energy FC, and Dodgers, as well as the Tulsa Oilers, Roughnecks FC, and Drillers.

House Bill 2361 was signed into law earlier this year to help fill the state's almost $900 million dollar budget shortfall. This fee is projected to generate around $2.6 million dollars a year.

The Oklahoma City Thunder stayed pat with their lone draft pick on Thursday.

With the 21st pick, OKC selected Terrance Ferguson, a 19-year-old shooting guard that played professional basketball in Australia last season, in lieu of attending college.

The Oklahoma City Thunder hold only one selection in tonight's NBA Draft, at No. 21.

Andrew Schlecht of the Down To Dunk podcast says one of OKC's most glaring needs is a backup point guard.

"The guy that I think fits the best is Derrick White out of Colorado. He's 6'5, he's got a 6'7 wingspan, he can play both guard positions, he can shoot from three. And I think when the Thunder look for a backup point guard, they're also looking for someone who can play next to Russell Westbrook."
