About Daily Thunder

Why become a Daily Thunder patron?

The Daily Thunder community, like the Thunder fanbase at large, has been fiercely loyal to the site. The readership is also hungry for the most and best content covering the team, which we are committed to delivering.

We know that A) doing so without losing money in today's media landscape is becoming more difficult and B) many of our readers want to support our work. Thus, this Patreon. To be clear, this is not a paywall requiring you to subscribe in order to enjoy Daily Thunder every day. Readers of Daily Thunder will have access to all of the same published content at the site that supporters do. But we crafted this avenue for supporters of the site to help us build our capacity and give perks to that community that felt valuable, rather than simply asking for donations.



Aside from maintaining the standard of quality you've come to expect at Daily Thunder, your support will allow us to:

  • Compensate writers and other contributors to the site
  • Keep the site clean from both intrusive ads and clickbait-y content
  • Plan live local events
  • Produce merchandise that marks you as one of the Thunder fans who "gets it"
  • Erect a golden statue of John outside his castle
  • Pay Cray's bail every few months

Okay, that last one isn't true, but you get the idea. Your support will help us support those who contribute to the site and deliver more for the reading community, with some perks to make it worth your while. Here's what you'll get for each of our tiers:

Fan Patron - $5 monthly. You love the Thunder and need more than game night to get you through the grueling work day. In fact, you need it ready and waiting for you before you even wake up.

  • Receive the Weekend Edition, a rundown of the best stories, news, tweets, and shenanigans from the Thunder universe, complete with a letter from the editor
  • Early access to Daily Thunder podcasts and select content

Diehard - $25 monthly. Your Thunder fandom knows no limits, and you cannot get enough of the best content/merchandise/action. You get all of the above, plus:

  • Free shirt
  • Happy Hour pricing at all times @ Anthem Brewing Company (when conditions allow again)
  • Free entry to all DT Live events

All-Star - $45 monthly. You love the Daily Thunder website almost as much as you love the Thunder basketball team. You will wear your DT swag as a badge of honor. You get all of the Diehard perks, plus:

  • 50% discount on all Daily Thunder merchandise
  • A personalized DT avatar and wallpaper
  • A quarterly guest appearance or named segment (your choice) on the Daily Thunder podcast
