Thunder move Tulsa 66ers franchise to OKC, to be renamed the Blue?

This name is great for Still MIGHTY's Tinder girl from the Loveline...

The Blue-only looks like the logo for an e-cigarette brand. The name, logo, etc. . . . ALL just horrendously stupid.

One of THE WORST rebrands in sports history. They "blue" it.

And as someone already mentioned, why not keep the 66ers name? OKC is on Route 66, so it would've made sense to keep it.

A question that is a bit off topic...what is the font of Oklahoma City on that map?

Appears to be Peignot, known best as the Mary Tyler Moore font. I like it a lot.

Thanks! That's exactly what I think of when I see that font.

Apparently the league and the team aren't on the same page...

Surely these are just placeholders because they didn't have enough time before the season starts.

*looks at Thunder logo*

*looks at calendar*

Never mind.

The logo and team name look like they are straight out of an unlicensed Basketball video game.

"OKC Blue vs. San Antonio Black" or something like that. Like Pro Evolution Soccers unlicensed teams.

To defend dropping the 66ers, you could argue that there's a little bit of brand confusion in having a team with a nickname similar to "76ers" that isn't affiliated with them while there is another nickname similar to "76ers" for a team that is. Still, nothing will ever excuse "Oklahoma City Blue" or their logo.

But really...what would've been wrong with this?

Or, if they wanted to tie it even closer to the main team's branding:
