Default SuperSonics are coming to Okc

Well they will have a new name and colors but the Okc owner and the city of Seattle settled out of court. It will cost Clay Bennett $75 million but the team will start playing games in Oklahoma City this season.

Well that kinda sucks for Seattle. I just can't believe they sold for such a minimum amount. I think their previous owner screwed them though.

Seeing how I live like 5 hrs away from Seattle I would be a "fan" but I'm not. They sucked. The Key Arena was the smallest place in the NBA, the Seattle people had a hard enough time to like the Sonics when the Mariners are doing poorly enough too. Why like 2 crappy teams?There is a whole big deal about that subject more then I care to type about. I'm glad they are gone, they didnt do much good over there and honestly they wont do any good over in OK either.

Have they tossed around ideas yet for a name? I know that Seattle is retaining the rights to the sonics name, so what will they call okc? the tornados?

That could be fun, make a name...

What is OK famous for?

The obvious, they have a good number of Tornados.
I think they are famous for beef, how about the Butchers?

Using Cowboys is out and anything like sooners as well, taken.

I like the Rattlers! We have a bunch of those here.

Word I'm hearing is Oklahoma City Barons.
