I know OKCs fans weren't super active on their SB Nation website (someone once said RealGM) but I'd be curious to read comments from that night's gamethread (wherever that may have been). I wonder if they went from Championship aspirations to despondent. I'm sure a few would have question that last Russ non call.
Love it! The videos you make are so beautiful, Apricot. One note, feels weird to have draymond apologizing at the end. It makes the carefully chosen quotes about steph's game not echo in your mind the same way (for me anyway).
