If you haven't heard, the Seatle SuperSonics are no more. The SuperSonics will be leaving Seattle and will be moving to Oklahoma City. However the name and colors will remain in Seattle. So they need a new name and colors. What doe you think they will be?

Hey now, I live in Oklahoma. With that said, I hate Durant, and I don't like the team at all, even if they were good, bleh. Maybe a new name and uniforms will help, but I don't like anyone on their roster so whatever.

No one asked for your opinion...

Can you let us mourn the loss of our team that YOU stole without input from the peanut gallery

And Durant is the most amazing thing to happen to the NBA in the last decade

if i were you -^ id be stoked about getting a team.

i was speaking with a friend on xbox who lives in oklahoma and he was telling me some weird names that people were talking about it being like the oklahoma city river rats was the worst one i can remmeber. lol.

but yeah i have family that lives there, yet have no idea anything about the place ;[ and i seriously doubt they would take 'oklahoma city bombers' which is actually quite a catchy name.... i would look at it as a turn around for something horrible into something positive, but i doubt theyd see it that way.

as for colors - something new. maybe gold (not wizards gold ,but a solid yellow) and black

How messed up is that? This ******* doesn't even like or want the team, and people and Seattle are losing their favorite team. People are losing their hearts in alot of ways, and the city OKC prolly doesn't even want the team. Maybe thats the reason McVeigh blew up those buildings.

i know it was a stupid opinion, but its still an opinion. i feel for u losing ur team, but i doubt Seattle will be without basketball for a really really long time. its too good of a city to not have a team. charlotte moved to NO, then a few years later, there was a new team in charlotte. i dont think we've seen the last of the nba in Seattle.

First of all, the TC asked for everyone's opinion, so good one there. Second, I didn't steal anything. I didn't want them here, I wanted them to stay in Seattle because I don't like Durant, I would much rather have a different team believe me. No one is stopping you from mourning the loss of your crappy team, which is now our crappy team, I'm the one who should be mourning here. We almost had an actual good team in the Hornets, now we're stuck with a team thats never going to do anything.

Get off Durant's nuts, that's the biggest BS statement I've heard in a long time. Just like I hate Vince Young and pretty much every other athlete that comes out of Texas University, I don't ever want them on a pro team in my state. At least your damn city had a choice in the matter, it at least went through a law suit and what not, do I have a choice that your team is coming here? No I don't, so **** off.

Completely unclassy response by some people. I was in eigth grade walking the track 10 miles from this when it happened. Shook the ground i was walking on. Killed some of my friends parents and family. Truly sad. No need for mockery.

The Oklahoma City Tornadoes because, well, that place has a ****load of tornadoes. That's all I really know about Oklahoma City. Seriously though, why are all of these people making fun of Oklahoma City. You guys probably know nothing about the city or the people, so don't just sit there and make fun of it.

What's funny, the people bashing it have no clue what they're talking about. OKC has a huge black, mexican and white population. There really is something for everybody. It's one of the most diverse and cool towns I've been to. Also, the crime isn't near most other cities that large.

I thought about it some more (and now saw the link) and really like the Oklahoma Thunder. The TBirds is pretty cool though too. I definately like the gold and black though.

It is hard to believe Seattle is losing their team. That really sucks. Only bright side is with the ways teams are starting to move around you'll probably have one again in a couple years. Still bull**** though. If they went with a new name the Outlaws would be kinda cool. Oklahoma City Outlaws kinda rolls off the tongue.

know who javon walker is? how about pacman jones? whats happened to them in las vegas? there is too much stuff there to **** with the athletes. if zach randolph can find trouble in portland, i think he'll find some in las vegas. and no one would go to the games cuz theres so much other stuff to do. las vegas is the last place a pro sports franchise belongs.

Cool, low crime, yay. What is there to steal there? On a more serious note, I'm glad to know that no one will break into Bennett's car.

Not that this matters but the T-Birds are a Seattle team. It is our minor league hockey team, so I really doubt they'll use that name. Bennett won't want the connection or anything of that matter.

Dude that is really harsh to the extreme... There is no humor in those lives lost..

It is messed up that the Sonics are leaving... but they will return again... and thier History will still be there..

I hate whenever a team moves in any sport... (Montreal Expos, Charlotte Hornets, Cleveland Browns, etc etc.) Heck, I even have a tough time re-adjusting to a uniform makeover...

But this is just uncalled for. You can call this team the Oklahoma David Sterns... cuz it seems like he is the only one who really wants this move.

At least the Sonics can keep their team name there - so when they come back (cuz they are coming back) - they won't have to be like Charlotte (who I still refer to as the Hornets).

To all the Sonic fans native to Seattle I am sorry for your loss. It really sucks how this happened.

I live about 2 hrs north of OKC in Wichita. I went to a few games during the Hornets stay in OKC and was truly impressed with the crowd and fans who embraced their temporary team. I think it will be tough for such a small market to survive but if the Hornets experiment was any indication I think the team will have plenty of support. I will definitely make the drive to see a few games and will truly enjoy being able to see some live games.

That said I like the Bombers although for reasons discussed it will never be the chosen name. Lightning is OK as is the Twisters.

The Oklahoma City "Backstabbers". Colors will be dark brown and light brown to symbolize all the dirt and cow manure in Oklahoma.

The mascot will be a dude with a goatee and round-rimmed glasses wearing a Microsoft t-shirt, holding a Starbucks coffee cup, and with a knife sticking out of his back. He'll limp around the court looking plaintively into the stands asking "Why?... Why?..." while the crowd cheers.

Listen, I know you guys are upset. With just reason, but that doesnt give you a right to make ludacris arguements. I didnt know having the most class was what mattered. In that case the Hall of Fame would be chalked up with nice guys. To be honest I LOVE KD, but to say hes the best thing that happened to the NBA in the past 10 years? Come on, lets be realistic, he wasn't even the number 1 pick and I cant say whether or not hes classier than Oden cause I just dont know.

The Sonics will be back in a few years, at least they left you the team name and colors. Moving teams robbed the nba maybe of the best name ever, New Orleans Jazz. I'm not going to say theres going to be another Durant every year, but the young talent thats coming out year after year (Beasley is argueably just as good as Durant, and went 2nd), should give you guys hope when the Sonics come back. It only took 2 years for Charlotte to get a new team as well. In the meantime, I heard those Portland Blazers have a pretty good young team going :rolleyes:

I argee Melo isnt a class act, and but Kobe man he is a class of his own, Bosh is probably one of the best human beings on earth, dude is humble, hardly swears, I dont even thing the guy drinks since Im from Toronto and I never heard or seen him in a night club, guy is close with the famiy and community, he also makes funny movie skits as a past time. Lebron is also a class act he never did anything bad for the NBA, if anything he is bring the NBA to heights it has never seen before. Durant is a good guy too but I doubt he is any different then Bosh, Lebron, Wade, and many other NBA players if we are judjing them by class.

Oklahoma City Bombers (no joke or pun intended) Name just sounds good

Let's face it, all the Seattle fans can say what they want, but they ranked 28th in the league in attendance. Stop blaming Oklahoma, we didn't steal anything, Bennet is the one making the move not Oklahoma. We supported the Hornets when they came here, and I'm sure most people will support the new team as well. Most people in Oklahoma probably don't care what team we get, just as long as we have a team. Their going to support that team no matter what, just like they support OU and OSU whether or not their up or down.

I don't like Durant, and I don't really care for anyone on the roster, but I'll still probably catch a game here and there. For one they had a chance to improve their team and they drafted Westbrook...another guy I don't like. Bleh, I hope Durant leaves when he's a free agent, maybe he can go back to Seattle if they get a team.

They will have the team for 3-5 years, won't fill the stadium with fans, Clay Bennett will go broke, and then have to sell the team. My guess is they will end up in Kansas City after 3-5 years. FAILURE TO THE OKLAHOMA CITY TEMPORARY BASKETBALL TEAM!!! Durant will leave, Green will leave, and Westbrook will leave. This will be one of those franchise's that loses, gets high draft picks, and the draft picks leave, and loses all over again. No free agents will want to play there.

I just want to make it clear to anyone from OKC that a majority Seattle fans do not blame you in the least bit, if we were in your situation we would be excited for a team too. I will apologize for the few bad apples that can't manage to do anything but rip on the city. But what I do want people to realize that if this can happen to the Sonics after 41 years, what's to stop someone from uprooting the Washington Redskins or St. Louis Cardinals. Actually pretty much any team for that matter. Fans be warned that the times are a changin'
