Successor of the Seattle Sonics, who were dismantled a few weeks ago, Oklahoma City has still no name. But apparently, the franchise owner would be on the verge to put an end to the mystery.

According to a TV report, the long-awaited new name of the basketball team in Oklahoma City would be the “Thunder”. What do you guys think ’bout it? It sounds good to me!

It’s still unofficial, though. But it’s just a matter of time before the rumor becomes an official news!

Meanwhile, more than 16,000 fans signed up for a season ticket request, in only 16 days. Definitely a great start!

    On s’en fiche de mon opinion, mais y’a ” Thunder Dan ” et c’est tout, … pour une équipe je ne trouve pas que cela soit top …

    I hope it won’t be this name.

    RATTLERS. Great choice. Lots of possibilities, very Oklahoma, really good logo options, PLURAL!!

    Imagine the Ford Center full of rattlesnake sounds as the team enters.

    Colors: Black, white, red, copper.

  6. dj memphis says:

    im a die hard memphis tigers and grizzlies fan and could care less wat they name em’ .but thunder sounds like a pee wee soccor team

  7. dj memphis says:

    i think it should be the oklahoma thunder .grizzlies will win at least 35 games while the “thunder” hah they will win maybe 24 games.

  8. dj memphis says:

  9. dj memphis says:

    1.they need to trade for steve francis
    2.they need a true center
    3. who cares they’re gonna suck anyways

  10. dj memphis says:

    anyone want to argue?

  11. peter says:

    yep, even though im from oklahoma and a lifelong sooner fan i must agree with dj there in memphis. it doesnt matter what they name them because they will suck even more than the memphis grizzlies. i would like to add that i feel that the grizzlies will make the playoffs this year and do really well with the new talent they have

  12. IT’S GREAT FOR THE NBA ,BECAUSE EVERY TIME ANY TEAM THAT FACES OKLAHOMA CAN JUST MARK OFF A WIN . P.S. THAT MEANS YOU MIAMI.

    There are some big time hater’s in here! Thunder is alright but Outlaws would have been my choice! Hey djmemphis there sure are alot of grizzlies running around Memphis arent there! There are worse pro names out there the wild,bobcats,grizzlies(was alright in vancouver)Thunder sounds alright with OKC but Outlaws and Barons would have been better!any way i will get season tickets even if they were called the smurfs!OKC will be in the top 10 this year in attendance and will avg. around 19,000 a game!
