Kevin Durant Jersey
Durant is arguably the best player in the NBA. Owning an authentic jersey with number 35 on the back and Thunder on the front is a great way to break in the hot summer months. The top-notch jersey sells for $89.95 and features recycled fabrication and embroidered lettering.
Hitting the road for family vacations during the summer months can become an expression of fandom for Thunder fans. Get dad a travel tumbler to take with him in the car on long trips. The cup holds 16 ounces of liquid, doesn't spill and is slim enough to fit in cup holders. The tumbler also works great at the office and for anyone on the go. The price is $21.95.
A Thunder wall clock is perfect for an office, bedroom or fan cave. For $34.95, a jersey is replicated in wood and a dial clock is inserted in the middle. The instrument measures 11 ½ by 13 inches in a white jersey with blue letters and numbers. The clock requires a AA battery for operation and keeps time perfectly.
The iPhone is not just a phone. It lets Thunder fans watch videos, download apps and even acts like a miniature computer. Accessorize an iPhone with a black hardshell case with an Oklahoma City Thunder logo on the back. The case fits neatly over the phone and is lightweight so it adds durability without bulk. For just $29.95, dad can get reliability and a nifty accessory for his iPhone 4.
Men, and especially dads, get to work outside on the weekends. Whether it's a barbecue or lawn mowing, having a unique Thunder gift for the outdoors is a perfect way to show passersby the man of the house is a fan. A garden gnome fits into any lawn or garden. Measuring nearly 12 inches tall, the gnome has a yellow hat and holds a basketball with a Thunder logo on it. The hat also has "THUNDER" emblazoned across the top. The little guy can be bought for $24.95.
