Happy birthday to you!

Pokes fans loving Melo move

The OKC Thunder trade for Carmelo Anthony caused a buzz among the Oklahoma State tailgates leading into Saturday’s TCU game. “I’m a little bummed about (Enes) Kanter getting traded. … but I think we’re going to the Western Finals now,” said Edmond native Bryson Holden, a freshman at OSU. Cowboy/Thunder fans Chad Schmidt and Lance Hoose found out about the trade watching the ESPN crawl at Eskimo Joe’s. “I love it,” said Schmidt, whose son was actually going to Kanter’s basketball camp this weekend. “It moves us up there (with Golden State),” Hoose said. “Going to come down to who wants it on the court more now.”
