A sellout crowd of 19,136 watches the tipoff during a Nation

UNITED STATES - MARCH 24: A sellout crowd of 19,136 watches the tipoff during a National Basketball Association (NBA) game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder at Ford Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, U.S., on Tuesday, March 24, 2009. Nearly three decades after an energy bust that forced 122 banks to close statewide, Oklahoma City is in the fifth year of an economic expansion that's produce the lowest jobless rate for a major metro U.S. area. Oklahoma City demonstrated it could support a NBA team, encouraging the Seattle Supersonics to move permanently and become the Thunder, which now draw crowds as large as the Boston Celtics.
