OKC Calling Themselves The Thunder
 
It would appear as though Oklahoma City will be known as the OKC Thunder.

Quote:

The new Oklahoma City franchise has nicknamed itself the Thunder, according to a report Saturday on the web site of the city’s ABC affiliate.

Citing a source close to ownership, KOCO-TV reported that the “registrar for all of the NBA’s Internet domain names were reserved okcthunderbasketball.com and okcthunderbasketball.net on July 10,” suggesting that the franchise formerly known as the Seattle SuperSonics will soon be renamed.

I don't really like The Thunder. It sounds amateurish. But then again naming a team after a dino sounded amateurish in 1994 also.Especially after giving them barny like purple uniforms.LOL

This sounds a lot like a WNBA team

Oklahoma City Sonics sound cooler.

I'll just name all the players after the Thundercats ... more fun that way.

Have to see the team play and then pick the lamest of the lot ... hated Snarf with a passion.

Pro sports team names that do not end in an 's' should be banned..... every one of them.
