    Default Ok City Thunder???

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]



    Sounds pretty gay and generic.

    NBA HAS GOT TOO MANY TEAMS....

    NBA is ****ing stupid.

    Utah JAZZ???

    New Orlean Hornets???

    Charlotte Bobcats?


    It should be Utah Bobcats

    New Orleans Jazz

    Charlotte Hornets..

    **** business. Isn't OKC a football city? The **** they want a basketball team for? That **** won't last anyway.


    The NBA doesn't need so many teams, same with the MLB.

    NBA should be 12 teams each conference

    East
    New York
    Boston
    Miami
    Detroit
    Indiana
    Cleveland
    Charlotte
    Atlanta
    Toronto
    Chicago
    Washington
    Puerto Rico(basketball is big over there, need to represent the caribbean)

    West
    LA Lakers
    Dallas
    Houston(TX only need two teams)
    Memphis
    Denver
    Seattle
    Las Vegas
    Phoneix
    San Francisco(cali only need two teams)
    Minnesota(no basketball team around there)
    Utah
    Kansas City(a lot of open fan base)




    The divisions should be





    North/Atlantic
    New York Knicks
    Boston Celtics
    Detroit Pistons
    Indiana Pacers
    Cleveland Cavs
    Toronto
    Raptors

    South/Atlantic
    Philadephia 76ers
    WashingtonWizards

    Carolina Bobcats
    Atlanta Hawks
    Miami Heat
    San Juan Atléticos


    West would be

    Pacific
    Los Angeles Lakers
    Seattle Sonics
    San Francisco Sharks
    Phoneix Suns
    Las Vegas Kings
    Utah Saintzz

    South/Midwest
    Dallas Mavericks
    Houston Rockets
    Denver Nuggets
    Minnesota T'Wolves
    Kansas City Jazz
    Memphis Blues





    Teams would be more talented, and the league will be more competitive.

    This would also transfer a lot of talent who can't make the teams to other leagues which makes the basketball world more competitive as a whole.

    Good thread, I agree. The NBA has too many teams, and they also have too many divisions. When you have all those teams, it makes it harder to spread the talent to each roster. When you have all those divisions, it makes it easier for teams to win divisions in divisions that have a lot of sub .500 teams.

    Whatever, it is corny but we also have in hockey the Tampa Bay Lightning so a team named after a type of weather isnt that random. I personally thought that it would stay as the Sonics. OCS.

    I think that a lot of nba teams have a stupid name,thunder is only the last,for exemple toronto RAPTORS?!?!?!??!?! huston ROCKETS ?!?!??!?!?!?!? new orleans HORNETS?!?!?!? orlando MAGIC!??!?!?!?!?!?! Only a child can give these names.......teams must have only the name of the city and if in a city there are 2 teams like los angeles ,one gets the name of the city (lakers=los angeles) the other gets the name of the state(clippers=california) what do you think about this?(I know that now it's impossible to change the names and they remain forever)

    yes, knicks is the best name of nba but not because I'm their fan but for this I take this from wikipedia) [Knickerbocker is a Dutch surname and a type of clothing. It is a name often cited in reference to New York City--an allusion to the fictional character "Father Knickerbocker" who, according to the tale told by Washington Irving, was the head of the first socially prominent family in New York. According to Ric Burns' New York: A Documentary Film, generations of New Yorkers proudly claimed to be descendants of Father Knickerbocker, despite his fictional roots.] this name is something historic,it isn't the name of a stupid animal or rocket!!! all the new teams have stupid names ,they don't have a historical name as new york so I prefer the name of the city because I hate stupid name like thunder.........

    Houston Rockets actually makes sense seeing as Houston is where most spaceships/rockets are launched.
    Orlando Magic also makes sense seeing as disney world is in Orlando

    Players Thrilled About Move To Oklahoma City
    29th July, 2008 - 2:12 pm
    By Buster Gunning

    The Supersonics franchise is ecstatic about their impending move to Oklahoma City, and why shouldn’t they be? Buster Gunning, a Seattle native, recently took a trip through “The Big Friendly” (it is really called that) and can whole-heartedly agree with the players' excitement.

    It was on one of my recent road trips trafficking intangible goods that I happened to travel through the future home of my childhood team.

    Nestled amidst the heat and the dust, the glorious Oklahoma City rose majestically against the flat, brown backdrop.

    Taking in the local fare, I had a double-stack and fries from the local Wendy’s. My appetite whetted and a few hours to kill, I decided to do some sightseeing.

    Ten minutes later I was on my way to Kansas.

    Using mobile phone technology, I made some impromptu phone calls to gather the players' reactions to the upcoming relocation.

    Kevin Durant, the lanky new face of the franchise, was first to answer and was noticeably exited.

    “Going to UT Austin, it was always my dream to move north to Oklahoma. In fact, it is every Texan's secret dream that they won't admit and passionately deny. Now I will finally achieve my life’s dream and have my moving expenses reimbursed to boot!”

    Point guard Luke Ridnour, who grew up in Washington and went to school in Oregon, was also excited to escape the repulsiveness of the Pacific Northwest.

    “Growing up amongst the beautiful lakes and lush green forests has brought me to the point of depression. Add to that, I was drafted by the Supersonics and forced to live in this one-horse town they call Seattle. Now, with this latest franchise move, everything is coming up Ridnour!

    "My only fear is that I'm traded before I get to reap the benefits of living in the OKC."

    Those just a few of the many positive comments pertaining to the move to Oklahoma City. Go Oklahoma City Thunder! May you prosper in your major market for years to come!

    The preceding article was a piece of satirical fiction.
