OKLAHOMA CITY -- The NBA has filed for trademark rights to six nicknames for the league's new Oklahoma City franchise: Barons, Bison, Energy, Marshalls, Thunder and Wind.

So there's still hope for Barons after all.

So. Does that mean instead of the fastbreak, they will break wind?

Bisons, Marshall and Barons are NBA type names.

No, it means that if they do badly, they'll blow.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

They need to have a name so that when someone beats them or they win they can add a really stupid verb. Like

Rockets blast off in Houston

or

Raptors claw back for the victory

or

No Magic in Orlando

or

Wizards tame the Bobcats

And that crap.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

Bison seems like a good one, but it would probably be an ugly type of brown based color scheme.

Marshalls could work with a good uniform. Energy would be a crazy uniform that would make it cool.

How can NFL and MLB come up with cool names and uniforms for the latest teams? Nationals and Texans are both much better than any of this stuff.
