The Oklahoma City NBA Franchise Formerly Known as the Seattle SuperSonics will finally announce on Sept. 3 their new name, along with their new colors. No word yet on if the announcement will include the unveiling of their uniforms.

About friggin' time. Is it okay to go ahead and start calling them the Oklahoma City Thunder already? It's been a foregone conclusion for a couple months now, supposedly, even if it does sound like a bad WNBA team name.

Hamtaro misses you too!

Being from Oklahoma, I think the most fitting team name for the players who end up there is "The Karmic Debtors."

It's Thunder, all right, and I must say they have a fairly boring, generic logo to go along with their fairly boring, generic name. (Then again, the team itself is also boring and generic, so I guess it's fitting).

At least that means the Sonics logo finally got scratched off this thread. No point in rubbing salt in Seattle's wounds.

Reminds me of the Atlanta Thrashers logo. What we the rejected choices? That looks like it took five minutes in Illustrator.

At least with the name we can find out how Clay-Clay is going out: Clay Death Thru Kimono. (And a bit about is sexual preference, probably: Clay Admire Hunk Tooth.)

There is just no lightning motif in that at all. That WCW Thunder logo is miles ahead of the OKC one.

How sad is it that WCW's 3rd best show (be honest, saturday night was better than thunder, even with the jobbers) has better graphics than a entity that could be worth hundreds of millions?

I think a more proper name for the team should be the Oklahoma City Kevin Durant plus the four bodies he has to carry every night. Truth in advertising and I'm sure it's going to be that way for a long while.

From the Thunder press release on their website:

[Thunder chairman Clay] Bennett announced the team's uniform design is being finalized and will be revealed in late September as players arrive for training camp. Additional graphic designs are also underway. "The wordmark and shield, although a proud historic landmark for the team, should be viewed as an initial primary logo as we work towards additional graphic development of our team identity," he said.

I read that to mean "Hey, we reserve the right to totally change the logo in the next month or so when we get feedback from 25 million people about how much it sucks."

Honestly, I was thinking of some kind of cloud horse galloping across the sky with lightning coming from its hooves like Black Elk uses as an illustration of storms rolling across the plains in "Black Elk Speaks"... but maybe that's just me.

StingArmy, thanks for that post. It made me laugh.

This is a terrible name and logo. I remember in the late 90s/early 00s when teams were starting to get cooler logos (Nets, 76ers, Sonics, Cavaliers, Nuggets) and now this crap? Ugh.

When you say cooler Cavs logo and late 90's, I hope you mean this and not this.

As for OKC, count me in with the 'terrible' vote.

No, read that as: "We know there are OCity sports fans who are dying to buy gear for their first in-city major professional team, so we're going to change the logo in a month so they have to buy all new gear with the new logo, and we're hinting at it here so you can't accuse us of the shenanigans we're about to pull. Welcome to our fantastic run as team owners!"

Yes, yes I did.

I forgot the Hawks got a cool makeover a few years back, too.

ESPN noted the similarities with the Doritos logo ...







Parquet Wishes and Leprechaun Dreams

The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"
