The arena goes dark, the sounds of thunder reverberate throughout the arena, psuedo lighting flashes, and Angus starts out on his guitar in Thunderstruck. There would be no better intro song top to get the fans into the game. Can you imagine 20,000 fans shouting "THUNDER!"? This song is hard rockin' and infectious. It would strike fear into the hearts of the opposing team. If you are not familar with this song, you need to give it a listen.
I thought you of all people would like bison.

Cyclones is good but mustangs has the same problem as bobcats. Too many high schools already use it.

Wind sounds like a WNBA team, it just sounds feminine

But it's going to be Thunder. They just have to put the logos and uniforms together before making it official.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

For me, in order:

1. Barons
2. Bisons
3. Marshalls

The other two just flat-out blow. Heck, I would take the "OKC Sperminators" over the Thunder and the Wind *vomit*.

One on one, even one on two, when the guy they call the Answer is on a one-way trip to the basket, you better just foul him. People can hate all day about the number of shot attempts. But, damn, give him props for even getting them up. He's small enough to have every shot contested. That 39% shooting sounds terrible to the regular reader, but have you seen these NBA players lately?"

Won't be the first time (see Maple Leafs, Toronto).
