The Oklahoma City....Thunder?
Welp, according to KOCO, the name of Oklahoma Citys NBA Franchise is....the Thunder.
I can't say that I'm surprised, but this name was completely predictable. Yay, we're storms! It's not embarassingly bad, like the Bobcats or Texans, but it's just completely predictable and boring. No words on team colours, but I DO know who our mascot will be....
That's right, you heard it here first, we stole our team name from the Golden State Warriors mascot. I am a HUGE Warriors fan, so I can't let this injustice stand. Either the newly crowned "Thunder" pay royalties, or I dress up like Thunder to every Thunder game. (Well, maybe not....)
But, I'm not getting too hasty yet. KOCO is the 3rd ranked station in our market, and I doubt it'd get such "Insiders Info". Stay tuned for developments.
