Forgot to mention that Oklahoma City's newspaper, The Oklahoman, is busy getting ready for the Sonics' arrival. The paper is owned by Sonics chairman Clay Bennett's wife's family, by the way. But two reporters were dispatched to Dallas, which is about 200-miles south of OKC, to begin work on features. One is a "get to know your Sonics" type piece where every player is expected to be profiled.
Don't know when the paper will get F Wally Szczerbiak, though. When the idea was explained to him, he gave a crazy look and a firm "No" to the interview request. Szczerbiak also declined to speak to locals following the game, however, stating he didn't want to say anything that would get him "fined or suspended."
"I'll just let my game do the talking," he said of scoring 20 of his game-high 26 points in the second half.
