The new Oklahoma City 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 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.

I agree it is a terrible name, but not any worse than the Raptors and their gay little dinosaur with shoes on.. I hope OKC rethinks the name.. on the other hand as a Houstonian, we hated it when the owner named the football team the Texans, now it doesn't bother us at all... after a couple of years nobody will think twice about it..
