Big League City

Big League City: Oklahoma City’s Rise to the NBA is the fascinating story behind the trans-formative moment when major league sports arrived in Oklahoma City.

Senator (now Mayor) David Holt’s position as the Mayor of Oklahoma City’s chief of staff from 2006 through 2010 gave him a unique opportunity to observe how a series of serendipitous events, along with the stubborn commitment of his sports-minded boss and the unified effort of perceptive investors, community leaders and City staff, brought the dream of NBA basketball to Oklahoma City.

Holt — a state senator (now mayor,) lawyer and first-time author — writes with the clear narrative style of a natural storyteller. In his deft hands the story becomes a compelling narrative, fascinating reading not only for Oklahoma City Thunder fans, but also for those interested in popular culture and the impact of professional sports on a city’s rise to prominence in the 21st Century.
