Bringin' Tha Thunder!

Since Steven Hill's picture still adorns The Hog Tale logo above with that majestic turn around jumper to take down Tennessee in last year's SEC Tourney, I had to mention on here that Hill has signed on with the NBA's OKC Thunder. Hill will be in uniform and on the bench tonight when the Thunder take on the defending NBA champion Boston Celtics.

The article quotes OKC coach PJ Carlisimo as saying that their 15th man (which is what Hill is right now) may be there for "two months or two days" depending upon the team's needs at that time. Here's hoping big Steven gets a little run while he's there, and swats a few shots off the heads of some unsuspecting OKC fans in the first few rows.

This also reminds me that Razorback basketball is underway and I am due for a 2008-09 preview of the new look Hogs. I'll try to get around to that within the next few days and have something up on here before the first official game of the season on November 14th against SE Lousiana. I know you can barely contain your excitement.
