Happy Anniversary, Daily Thunder
DailyThunder.com officially launched January 20, 2009, so on this episode, we're celebrating 11 years of bringing the Thunder... daily. Our featured guest is Daily Thunder contributing writer, Dom. That’s it. Dom. He’s the one name diva of the DT family like Prince or Lizzo. We recap the Thunder's Monday night win over the Rockets and discuss the rise of Steven Adams. Then, we will open the Daily Thunder mailbag (which is mostly full of trade deadline questions) and we celebrate Daily Thunder’s anniversary with a 2009 Thunder trivia showdown between DT publisher John Napier and senior writer Olivia Panchal.
