    Oklahoma City Twitter Thugs Go in on Patrick Beverley After Thunder Season Ends (LOTS of NSFW)

    It must hurt to go into a season with the highest of hopes, dreams of a championship, go through the grind of an 82-game regular season to secure a one seed, and then have it all go up in smoke in a matter of about a week.
