It's gotta be Barons. That's the only one that's any good.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

Thunder's the only decent one there. Barons is a college name, Energy is a WNBA name, Bison is awful, and Marshalls is just retarded. I won't even get started on 'Wind'. Thunder may be a D-League name but its the best available option out of those six.

How about the Tumbleweeds? If that isn't menacing enough, they could be the Flaming Tumbleweeds.

I hate sports teams that aren't in the plural form.

Yeah. I'm looking at you, Orlando.

Marshal is usually spelled with one l. It's not clear why the league used a variant spelling.
Am I the only one who laughed at this?

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

They should be the Bisons or the Barons. Both are far better names than the Thunder.

Which sounds better:
"Kevin Durant just scored his first bucket as a Thunder!" --or--
"Kevin Durant just scored his first bucket as a Bison!"

Of course, I hate it when team names are in the singular. It makes no sense to me.

Non-sensical isn't being creative.

Wind is really stupid. Tornadoes sounds much better. Energy... that just sounds feminine.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

Bison is good.

Thunder is terrible. Terrible. Terrible.

Barons is okay.

Energy is bad.

Wind is really really really bad.

Marshalls isn't that great but it isn't exactly bad.
