KMart Likes Playing For The Thunder

The hottest ticket in the state of Oklahoma this week will be in Oklahoma City on Sunday. That's when James Harden returns to face the Thunder in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

Who could forget that Saturday night in late September? The Oklahoma Sooners lost to Notre Dame in Norman and just up the road the Thunder were trading one of the big three.

OKC got Kevin Martin in the trade and he says this post-season is different than the ones he's used to.

"Usually I'd be heading the airport this morning around 4am and can't wait to get back to Ohio," said Martin. "So a lot has changed. You got to feel blessed to be in these situations. I've been thankful all the way back to October to join a great organization. The way the players excepted me here 82 games went quick. So, I don't want it to end."

The Thunder and the Rockets open up the first round of the playoffs Sunday at 8:30pm in Oklahoma City.
