Oklahoma City Thunder Wins Sports Team Of The Year

The Oklahoma City Thunder won Team of the Year at the 2013 Sports Business Awards, with its attendance, TV ratings and corporate sponsorship all far outpacing the supposed confines of the 41st largest U.S. media market, and standing among the best in the NBA. A thought leader on many aspects of team operations, the Thunder has also won many plaudits for extensive community involvement.

That connection was forged long before the damaging tornadoes in Oklahoma this week, but have been deepened by the recent tragedies. "Very early in the process when we moved to Oklahoma City, it was very important we made a connection with the community and considered ourselves as a community asset," said Dan Mahoney, Thunder VP/communications and community relations, when he accepted the award. "That brings a great responsibility, one we embrace from our ownership, our players on down."
