Big League City is the fascinating story behind that transformative moment when The Thunder came to Oklahoma City, elevating it to a big league city.
David Holt's position as the Mayor's assistant gave him a unique opportunity to observe how a singular series of serendipitous events paired with the stubborn commitment of his sports minded boss, the Mayor, and the remarkably unified effort of a group of perceptive investors, community leaders and city staff brought the dream of NBA basketball to Oklahoma City.
Holt, a lawyer and first time author, writes with the clear narrative style of natural story teller. In his deft hands the story becomes a compelling chronicle and a good read. It will be of interest not only to Thunder fans but also to the growing number of those fascinated by Oklahoma City's assent into the ranks of a truly vibrant and exciting American Cities.
