Charles Chaney – @OKCChuck/@ThunderObsessed – Founder & Editor
I founded this site in May of 2011. It started out as a way to vent a lot of my thoughts on the Thunder in the 2011 Playoffs. However, people loved what I had to say and I watched my personal twitter grow from people wanting more Thunder knowledge. I was the Sports Editor at Eastern Oklahoma State College, also wrote for the OU Daily. I’ve had my work posted on USA today, Yahoo! Sports and ESPN.com. I give a fan’s perspective while being knowledgeable, but I’m real. It’s not all candy and rainbows, I’ll call a player out if they’re not living up to the team’s expectations. So, bring your big boy pants and let’s Thunder Up!
Weston Shepherd – @WShep – Editor/Writer
Currently an editor/author at Variance Magazine, an up-and-coming music & entertainment publication, I’ve grown quite fond of the entire writing process. I went to Oklahoma State University, where I studied Public Relations and Sociology. Basketball was my first true love, a love that has only grown stronger since the Thunder came into existence, and I bring a fresh voice to the Thunder Obsessed team. I like Russell Westbrook jump shots from the elbow, Kevin Durant tomahawk jams and Big Perk’s silky ball handling skills. Thunder Up.
Scott Brook’s Tie – @ScottBrooksTie – Writer
I’ve been a Thunder fan since July 2, 2008, and it’s been a love affair ever since. I’ve done some free lance writing on the Thunder in the past, and run a novelty twitter account dedicated to the game worn ties of head coach Scott Brooks. While my true background is in baseball and science, a dedication to studying and understanding the game has opened up my knowledge base about the hardwood classic. I like to keep it positive, for the most part, and see the optimistic side of even the most absurd of plays.
Jason Hines – @J5Hines – Writer
Jason doesn’t write very often, but when he does, he lays down the real numbers. His articles on the C.B.A have been some of the most successful stories we’ve ever had on here. They’ve been linked on Yahoo! and on MSN Sports. Follow him on twitter for good insight into the numbers game. Also, he’s quite funny, you’ll get a good laugh. Jason is currently a lawyer for Chesapeake, he has a wife and is a very avid Thunder fan. They’re season ticket holders, so it’s very common if you were to run into them at the ‘Peake during a game night!
Ryan Querbach – @ryanquerbach -Writer
I’ve been a basketball fan my whole life, but never identified with a team until the Thunder graced my hometown with their presence. I’ve been hooked ever since, making it a point to watch as many games as possible. I studied journalism at OU and have done work for the OU Daily and the Oklahoma Gazette. I don’t generally do a whole lot of sports writing, but I love the Thunder and feel as though I have enough knowledge to contribute quality content about the team, whether it is analysis or commentary. Like Chuck, I won’t always have positive things to say, but will always support the team nonetheless.

I’v almost finished with my degree in Journalism at UCO. I’m still fairly new to the world of sports writing and the NBA. Originally from Tulsa, my Oklahoma City friends introduced me to the Thunder shortly after moving here. The more I learned about this organization the more I loved it. I played basketball as a kid for 8 years, but never really followed the NBA until now. So now I’m just learning as much as I can and just enjoying watching this team get better.
