Chicken-Fried News: Thunder assists




Kevin Durant gets his orders and relays a signal to a confident Steven Adams. The center holds his own in the lane, going straight up to grab ... a box of waffle cones?

Oklahoma City Thunder players invaded local businesses late last month as part of the team’s Acts of Kindness event. Durant, Adams and André Roberson took their places behind the counter of a Braum’s Ice Cream & Dairy Store. Serge Ibaka and Dion Waiters worked checkout at Homeland. Kyle Singler served up piping-hot roast beef at Arby’s.

For a few brief moments, the average service industry pay in Oklahoma City probably shot up 1,000 percent.

Imagine Adams with the cones and customers coming in left and right. He needs to pass this strawberry mint chocolate chip double off to a teammate. If only Russell Westbrook was here. We hear he can handle a triple double.

Adams fakes it to Durant, who is well covered behind the register line. He finds an open Roberson, who finally breaks free of the long drive-thru line. The guard dashes over to the cold counter top for the easy scoop … and … scores!

Ibaka would be a great employee to have for swatting back shoplifters.

Maybe next time we will catch teammates recommending hot sauces at The Beef Jerky Emporium or handing out Brussel Westbrook pies at Empire Slice House.
