    Default OKC logo leaked

    http://nbaokc.blogspot.com/2008/08/huge-logo-leak.html

    Apparently some worker snuck his tiny digital camera into the unpacking facility for "Thunder" gear, and it confirms our fears.

    Looks like the secondary logo.

    I hope this was a fake or something. Looks legit though. Pretty disappointed. They wanted a team and I was expecting them to be more creative.

    The cool thing is that our name is original. We didn't take it from an animal, nor really anything obvious. That and our colors are our state colors as well.

    If that really is their logo, it looks like they stole our typeset for the name.

    Well that's not quite true Duke. The name came from a combination of Pacer horses and the Indy 500 Pace car. If I remember the story it was also to represent "setting the pace" in the ABA.

    Actually, Pacers refers to Pace racing horses, also known as "pacers". Check out the legend of a horse named Dan Patch.

    which really makes me wonder why Boomer is... a tiger, can somebody enlight me about that? how come a tiger is our mascot although our name refers to hosrses ? because of the "stripes" on the logo?

    I won't even open the debate on Bowser

    EDIT: the next expansion team's name will be The Boom Shocka-lockas, mark my words...

    My best guess is that because we already had a team in town using a horse as their mascot, and their slogan at the time was still "Go Horse!", correct? I'm thinking it would be a little overdone with all the horse paraphernalia. We're not even known for horses as a state or city...

    EDIT: Given that all franchises now try a little harder to tie in what the region is known for with the team's name, if we ever end up with an expansion team in any major sport, would they derive our name from corn or soybeans? Maybe we could be the Ethanol?

    For the record, Boomer is a panther.

    I am fully aware of the origin of the team's name. I'll need you all to ask Peck on my undying devotion to the team.

    And yes, our name is original more or less to the fact that we aren't named after an animal such as a bulldog, eagle, or a tiger of the sorts.
    This goes true especially for collegiate teams.

    In a sense our team name was really a creative choice.

    agree with Hicks it looks more like a secondary logo but it's still not a good omen...

    anyway the ground for name chosing sucked and none of them was clearly translatable into a logo so I guess it's kind of logic to see this now

    I could've lived with the name if a cool logo went with it, not this microsoft clipart crap.

    Why didn't they just use a picture of thunder? Oh wait, it's an auditory weather phenomenon that can't be visually depicted. Right. Great move...going with a sound. I can't wait for the Las Vegas Bamfs.

    Yes, but think of all the cool pictures and logos you could do.

    Do you know how classic your response is?

    Hmm... a lack of visual depiction seemed to work with the SuperSonics. Hell, they didn't even have a true logo besides the Skyline one they used in the 90s.

    Planes that can surpass the speed of sound are colloquially known as "supersonics".

    And you had the whole JJ Fad tie in to work with.

    I saw the Presidents of the USA when Chicago was playing Seattle in the Finals and they redid their song "Supermodel" as "Supersonics". Pretty funny.


    Oh how I wish the Pacers had the exciting image of a harness racer and jockey in his sulky trotting or pacing along in that lame race gait they maintain. I'd rather watch badgers on Skittles race than watch that. "Oh no Don, Mr. Speedy has broken his stride, he'll have to go to the back instead of winning the Triple Crown. What drama." Um, no.


    I hope they use this song during their intros:
    It's still the NBA isn't it? You can count on it. In fact who wants to bet that half the reason they picked that name was because of hearing that song before every Hornets game and the locals thinking it was unique to their stadium.

    Just one more reason I hate David Stern's approach the league, mandated uniformity in terms of hype and production. I know the cars sounds bug people but at least that's one of the few "Pacers" items you hear and see at a Pacers game.

    Looking at it again this morning, do I see traces of blue and yellow in that logo? Is yet another team, wait for it, stealing our thunder in the team colors department?
