Shirtless Poet Has Composed the Only Fight Song the OKC Thunder Will Ever Need

Thunder enthusiasts are already considered some of the best supporters in basketball due to their noise-generating faculties. Perhaps an injection of Matthias' brooding, cryptic and structurally accessible songwriting is all that's needed to propel the home team to heretofore unrealized postseason success. (Having Matthias stand shirtless outside the visitors' locker room would provide an edge, too.)
