Report: Oklahoma City franchise nicknamed Thunder

OKLAHOMA CITY (TICKER) —Oklahoma City’s new NBA 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 team 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.

The franchise left the Pacific Northwest after an ugly court case ended with an agreement between the team and the city of Seattle, which released the club from its lease at KeyArena - the crux of the disagreement.

I'm stuggling to work out what this has to do with Chris Paul? as you have called this thread Chris Paul in now a thundercat

CP3 plays for New Orleans, Kevin Durant , Jess Green and Russell Westbrooke etc. are likely to become thundercats

thunder is what you were hoping for? very corny. what will their symbol be? some clouds? a hammer? thunder is a wnba team name. a high school team name. should not be the name of a professional franchise imo.

It's miles better than the other names they were considering. Much better than Barons. Their symbol could be a lightning bolt, which would look pretty sweet on an NBA jersey... they could go other directions with it too. It's a perfectly acceptable name for a pro team.

And Thunder is horrible. I fail to see the reasoning in not ending in S. The Jazz, Red Sox and White Sox are the only three that work without it, and even those are awkward at times.

Actually a lightning bolt is not relevant because they're not called the "Lightning"- they're called "Thunder"- all they can use in the logo is some angry looking clouds and maybe a little girl covering her ears.

"Dwight Howard is a Magic."

That works?

You always have to say "plays for the Magic" or, as the media does half the time, "Dwyane Wade, a member of the Heat" like it's a political party or something.

The worst still is people's obsessions with treating nonplural team names as a singular. "The Magic is on a four-game winning streak" or "The Heat was the the 2006 NBA Champion." If a team isn't going to have an S at the end, people at least need to treat it like deer or fish.

Manny is a Red Sock.

Sox is actually just an oddly spelled plural. It's still a little awkward, but at least them and CSW have history going for them.

Okay, "a Jazz" is dumb too.

I was giving them brownie points for -- originally anyway -- having a clever name for their hometown. New Orleans Jazz is almost worth the awkwardness. I guess Orlando Magic is the same thing. But as someone who has had tp go to a conference there and been bored out of my ******* mind at night because by far the best place to have a beer in the entire city is a House of Blues...well...yeah...I'm not a fan of Orlando in general. Fortunately I get to go there for a week early next year. :shootmeintheheadsmiley:

Thunder isn't that bad but it isn't that good either. If they're actually going to go with "thundercats" they should just make it "Thunderkatz" so it officially sounds like an AFL team name.

Ending in S? So should it be the Miami Heats, too? Or the Orlando Magics for that matter?

JayRedd
07-20-2008, 12:46 PM
Nah...should be the Miami Tigers or something.

All the iconic, tangible Miami nouns were taken (Gators, Hurricanes, Rays, Sharks, albeit San Jose) so you just go with something solid and random. And if they just had to go with something Miami-centric, go with the Miami Waves or something stupid that can be made plural.

I understand the Disney tie in with Orlando, but Magic is still a concept...not a tangible thing that really lends itself to a mascot, logo or any real identifying thing. I mean, the Magic and Jazz (and even Heat to a lesser degree) are better than say, the Liberty or the Wild (which are completely unforgivable), but there's still no reason to forgo a person or thing for an idea or a concept. There are plenty of other nouns out there.

The Orlando Princes or something. Or if they wanted to be really accurate, the Orlando Overpriced Hotel Rooms or the Orlando Screaming Kids.

This doesn't really necessarily mean that the team will be called the Thunder. Most of the time they let the fans vote on this stuff. They would register all the domains that they wanted for all of their choices before revealing the vote, just to make sure they got what they wanted. So "Thunder" could just be one of five choices, or however many.

And just as evidence to the point, "http://okcbaronsbasketball.com/" has been parked by GoDaddy.

There was a car model by Ford (?), called the Pacer, which was named after, depending on who you asked, the Indy500 pacecar, or a pacer type horse. The team was named while the car was still on its way up the peak of popularity...so, either after the car, or like the car, after the 500 pacecar, or the horses.

AMC, not Ford.

And OK, did a little research. The team preceeded the car. The original investors came up with Pacers as a combo reference to the harness raciing horses, and the 500 pacecar.

The AMC Pacer wasn't made until '75. Our Pacers had been around since '67.

The Pacers were named based on both the Indiana Racing tradition and the breeding of pacer type horses. It was said that they were going to "set the pace in the new league."

The AMC Pacer did not come out until 1975, and the Pacers were founded in 67.

Why so? And do you prefer Indianapolis Colts or Indiana Colts?

The idea behind naming the Pacers the "Indiana Pacers" was to draw on a broader fan base. There were originally plans to play in arenas throughout the state, and it seems to me that they may have played a couple of games at Assembly Hall (though I may be wrong about that).

This was a common strategem in the ABA, where teams sought to make up for smaller core markets by expanding them. However, it generally failed. Carolina and Virginia ran into problems with extra expenses (having to maintain more than one office) and the confusion/lack of connection with fans that was caused by the multiple home arenas.

For the Pacers, it worked primarily because Indianapolis and its surrounding area provided a strong core of support. The name stuck simply because it was there first.

As to Indiana Colts vs. Indianapolis Colts, it's really a 6-of-one-half-dozen-of-the-other type of thing. They've been called the "Indianapolis Colts" for 25 years now, so "Indiana Colts" sounds wierd to me. Plus, the Colts were attracted (IIRC) primarily through the efforts made by the city, as opposed to the state, in other words, the city made the initial investment and took the initial risk. However, that's really parsing because there's no question that they draw support from throughout the state, and I'd have no real objection to "Indiana" Colts, other than it just sounds odd to me, now.

I'm still surprised the Irsay family allowed the city or state name to be included. The Irsay Family Colts made the most sense to me than and now.

"Its not 'your' team and its not 'our' team, its 'my' team." Yep, Daddy Irsay had a way with words. But its cool now to pretend like that team was popular during its first decade in Indiana when Bobby was still involved. (ha!)

Well, Irsay is/was right. It is his team. And now, what does it really matter anyway. It's also fun to pretend the Colts were immensely popular in Baltimore in the few seasons before they were moved to Indianapolis.

I don't like Clay Bennett at all but he had a right to move the team from Seattle, it is his team that he bought with his money. No city is entitled to having a professional sports franchise. If I was a multitrillionaire and I was, say, harassed for some reason by the Philadelphia police, I could buy the Eagles and move them just to **** the whole city off if I wasn't violating any leases, the league okayed the move, and if the old owner was willing to sell.

All's well now. 25 years in Indy, a super bowl championship, a beautiful new stadium, one of the greatest QB's ever in his prime, and 5 straight division championships. And before you know it, the team will have played longer in Indy than in Baltimore.

Maybe it took time for the team to get hugely popular, but winning cures all. I think that's the case with most franchises...especially new teams in small markets. Most of the hugely "popular" teams in pro sports tend to have a lot of championships to their name. I don't think that's a coincidence.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The NBA has filed for trademark rights to six nicknames for the league's new Oklahoma City franchise: Barons, Bison, Energy, Marshalls, Thunder and Wind.

An attorney for the league made the filing Monday with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Marshal is usually spelled with one l. It's not clear why the league used a variant spelling.

The filing is listed on the patent office's Web site.

The NBA and the team have refused to discuss possible new names for the team formerly known as the Seattle SuperSonics ahead of an official announcement, which has not yet been scheduled. Not quite yet
