    Not the way to celebrate making it to the Western Conference finals, needless to say.

    Six still hospitalized in good condition; one still critical.
    Uh, yeah, Skip, like, great, but when eight people get shot in your downtown area, perhaps any sort of mention about your b-ball team's success is a bit misplaced at this time - the damn morning after.

    In the process of - in the classic words of the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan - "defining deviancy downward," we've come to expect - and almost accept - celebrations involving fistfights, smashed windows, a couple cop cars turned upside down and even set ablaze, etc., but actual gunplay in downtown OKC during a celebration of a conference semi-finals victory? Good God.
