OKC NBA to announce nickname, logo, colors September 3

Recommended Posts

How many times do I have to say this? It should be the 'Blunder' because moving this team from Seattle IS a blunderful move and I hope the team sucks so bad that the heartless bastard of an owner sells the team to the NBA so they can destroy this abomination and bring back the REAL Sonics.

Once you tell some one about it, should it really be a secret anymore? And a huge surprise would be them actually choosing a different name then what everyone knows it is.

Halle-freaking lujah!!!!

Four colors eh?

Shall we start the speculation on what those four colors might be?

I'm kind of unsure at this point, though I feel like black will be one of the main colors

If Hurricane Gustav hits New Orleans (hopefully not), Seattle may get another NBA team sooner than expected.

For what it's worth, the backdrop to the unveiling information on OKC's website is a picture of an OKC court. They used 2-tone stain and the colors were a gradient from (you guessed it) dark to light blue.

Not trying to be funny, just stating the reality that another hurricane could potentially hit the city and as a result I would think Seattle would be the logical location for the Hornets to temporarily move to. Hopefully it doesn't come to that.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City's new NBA franchise has finally set a date to announce its name and team colours.

The team said Wednesday that it would unveil the name and colours simultaneously on its website and at a downtown event Sept. 3.

Clay Bennett's ownership group has applied for trademarks for six names: Thunder, Energy, Wind, Marshalls, Barons and Bison.

Oklahoma City television station KOCO has reported that the choice will be Thunder, but Bennett has refused to comment on what the name will be.

The former Seattle SuperSonics announced on July 2 that they would be moving to Oklahoma City.

Nope...I went with standard PMS colors: 427 C, 7541 C, Cool Gray 1 C, and Transparent White.

(A swing and a miss in the humor dept. on my behalf!)
