Begged my mom for these shoes in ‘97! To match my Gary Payton jersey. Act like I wasn’t a Sonics fan since middle school.
ED. NOTE: This is a silly post if only to slightly address the slew of hate mail I’ve received lately over this t-shirt I designed. In context, the design was meant for former Sonics fans turned OKC Thunder fans (yes, they exist! as they should!) to represent both teams and to “never forget” where they once came from. Of course, die-hards and homers seem to disagree with the sentiment and because of it, I should from now on live my life—according to these emails and Facebook messages—in fear of drive-bys, punches to the face, and kicks to my balls. First world problems, guys. It is not a personal attack against you, your history, your city, your team, nor its fans. IT’S JUST A T-SHIRT. Move on.
