Here’s a new one: Massive cornfield maze tribute to Thunder

You’ll never see anyone in Manhattan do this for the New York Knicks.

Oklahoma City Thunder fans are as passionate as any fans in the NBA. While they love college football (even during the NBA playoffs last year Oklahoma football stories often drew more internet traffic at the Oklahoman than the Thunder) they are full-throated supporters of their Thunder.

Jerry and Nancy Reding carved the Thunder corn maze you see on the right into their field in Chickasha, Ok., about 40 miles outside Oklahoma City (hat tip to Ball Don’t Lie for finding this).

I think the Kevin Durant portion on the right is the best. But the entire thing is impressive. (The would have done a James Harden beard area, but that would have taken up the entire field.)

Starting on Sept. 28 when the field and farm open to visitors, you’ll be able to go through the maze and get lost in the Thunder. Literally. I mean look at that maze. Even if you have an aerial photo with you and a GPS it could take hours to get out.

I was skeptical when the Sonics became the Thunder (and I still don’t like how that went down), but Thunder fans have won me over. They care. They love the team. You have to respect their commitment. There have been no NBA corn mazes in the past, and you’re not going to see one for the Celtics anytime soon no matter how passionate their fan base is.
