OKLAHOMA CITY - The Rev. A. Byron Coleman III talked of a David that battled lions and bears while tending to sheep, and then went on to slay Goliath.
On Sunday, Coleman, the pastor of Fifth Street Missionary Baptist Church, 801 NE 5 Street, mixed an old story and one still developing in a sermon titled “Don't Underestimate Me.”
The final season of the NBA franchise in Seattle, 2007-08, the team was 20-62. In 2008-09, the inaugural season as the Oklahoma City Thunder, only three wins were claimed in the first 32 games. But the Thunder showed some improvement and finished with a record of 23-59.
The next year they earned a spot in the 2010 NBA Playoffs. That season was Coleman's first as a chaplain with the Thunder.
