As a neutral fan that doesn't really care too much about either team, I can say that the Seattle Supersonics logo was nowhere close to being as ugly as the crap presented Wednesday. I honestly believe my 4 year old nephew could draw something better... heck, for the money they probably spent on that I'd go to art school, finish it in 2 months and come up with something better. It is, without a doubt, the single worst logo and name in the NBA. And that's saying a lot, because it's really hard to beat the Bobcats and such in this competition.

Now whaddya gonna say? "At least we have a team," in a girly voice, "at least we get to watch them play." Let me tell you something. Watching the Thunder will be like spotting a real good lookin stripper from a distance. Then when you actually get the lapdance, you realize she only looks good from the distance, in the dark. But ****, the ***** is already on you. You gotta pay her. And now you're regretting you picked this ho instead of the other Asian one, and now you're wishing you didn't buy those season tickets and you're trying to hawk em off to all your buddies for a quarter of the price. They don't want them either.

You got serious anger issues you need to work on..or maybe you just need to grow up. Are you even old enough to get into a strip club?

I don't thing Seattle will have a problem getting another team, but they are going to need to do a lot of things before that happens. You can say all you want about OKC, logos, or coaches, I'm not so vain that is will hurt my feelings.

This team has a way to go to be competitive, they are young and inexperienced, but has a good start on talent. Putting a winning product on the floor is not an over night project, but we're willing to give them a chance to put it together.

Of course you are. Someday, you'll go from a bad team that's ugly as ****, to an average team that's ugly as ****. Maybe they'll even be good. But still then, they'll be ugly as ****. Looks like a South Park parody of a NBA team.

He's a disgruntled Sonics fan with a language problem. When you haven't got anything constructive to say, you resort to name calling and bad language.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

My point is your team has the ugliest, most derivative, most generic logo in the NBA. You are a fan of a cast off team. 2nd hand goods. Recycled. Used like an old dish rag. I don't think you understand. I'm not mad at you. I'm laughing at you. You are comedy. Is. that. clear. enough?

Laugh all you want. We are disgusted with YOUR area because most of you people are not politically intellegent enough to see the windfall of keeping OUR team. Your mistake, our windfall. We are comedy? No problem. Your area is a vomit filled bad movie.

I suggest finding a different board where your comments are shared... This one is NOT it.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

Someone from Oklahoma knocking Washington from a political and environmental standpoint is more comedy. Your belligerent attitude makes this more fun for me. We eat King crab and salmon here, boy. Fresh. I can send you my table scraps if you want. More "windfall" for you.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

I'd really be surprised if they stick with this logo for more than 2 seasons. Especially with everyone getting logo/color updates at a steady pace over the past years. They have some great designs too. None of this Washington Generals lookin stuff. Look at the Wolves logo. That's how you do it.

We cared about the team, no masked cursing. That's not why we lost it. It's cause Clay Bennett is a douchebag and Schultz didn't want to be smart about it. You guys got lucky. Still, your team is going to have the worst record this year in the NBA. Try cheering about that.

No. Clay Bennett is a VERY smart INVESTOR. That is how he became one of the wealtiest men in Oklahoma... Not Gaylord money as some have accused. The state of Washington are the "douchebags." The legislature was stupid by voting against the bill to fund the arena, and the people of Seattle (or King County, whichever it was) were stupid enough to screw themselve out of future venues with that prop 91 (or whatever). Should the Marlins or the Seahawks (actually, when) need a new stadium that prop will prevent it and you will be a three time loser.

Oklahoma City showed what smart investors do. They invest in their future instead of being a bunch of loser tree hugger liberals like the people of Washington and Seattle in particular.

So. Stop your crying and face it... YOU LOSE, LOSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To answer your question... I am no kid. I was working, voting, and raising a family while most of you were loading your diapers.

These Seattle people need therapy to get over their "loss." It's Oklahoma City's team now. GET OVER IT!

One more thing. This is not a Hallway biography board. It's about the Oklahoma City Thunder. My personal life is not a discussable topic.
