The 2012 calendar year Eric Maynor took a tragic turn for the worse during the Oklahoma Thunder’s game against the Houston Rockets last Saturday when he tore the ACL in his right knee during a drive to the basket in the 4th quarter. The injury has ended the Thunder backup guard’s season and it’s difficult to imagine that he is not completely devastated by this stroke of bad luck.
Thankfully for Maynor, he has Alex and Haley, two unknown Thunder fans who sent the guard a package consisting of cupcakes and balloons in the hopes that it would lift his spirits and lift him out of the injury doldrums at least for a moment or two. How thoughtful.
Maynor uploaded the above photo and the two below to Twitter Monday with the tweet, “I love it here in OKC.” Indeed. It’s hard not to when you have such supportive fans in your corner like Alex and Haley.
