Toby Keith will narrate the story of his hometown of Moore, Oklahoma and the bond that was forged between the city and the Oklahoma City Thunder after a tornado devastated the area earlier this year. The 30-minute NBA TV Originals special, OKC Thunder: Heart of the City premieres November 22 at 7/6c on NBA TV.
The Thunder rallied behind the people of the Sooner state in the days after a powerful tornado nearly wiped out the city of Moore in May 2013. The team, led by Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, visited the city immediately, working to raise the spirits of those affected by the storms.
Continuing to demonstrate its continued support to the city months after the tornado, the Thunder held a training camp practice at a high school in Moore as a sign that they would continue to be there for the residents as they work to get back on their feet. Toby, whose mother and sister live in Moore, brings a personal touch to the story as he reflects on how the storm impacted his own family.
