‘Thunder’ clear favorite for OKC team namePosted by Inside Hoops
The Oklahoman (Mike Baldwin) reports: The NBA’s Web site all but confirmed Thunder would be the nickname of Oklahoma City’s NBA team on Wednesday morning — but by Wednesday afternoon, the evidence was gone. By Wednesday afternoon, the word Thunder was nowhere to be found on the Oklahoma City schedule page, and all of the links pointed to www.nba.com/oklahomacity. Oklahoma City NBA team spokesman Dan Mahoney’s comment Wednesday was similar to previous comments. “We’re not going to comment on the name until we’re ready to announce something,” Mahoney said.
