Sounds like a WNBA or Minor League Baseball team.

I completely agree with the WNBA comment. That is precisely what popped into my head when I heard the name and saw the logo.

Thunder is a poor choice of name. What they should of instead of just using thunder, they should have added to it

Thunderstorm(although too similar to Seattle Storm)
Thunderbirds(That would have been decent. The logo could have consisted of a jet, a bird, or the Ford Thunderbird logo... I'm also bias towards Ford Thunderbirds)
Thunderbursts

IMO, thunder is a cool sounding word, but by itself, it sounds very corny when it comes to a nick name or team name.

Thunder is a nice name but I still prefer it to be called Okalahoma Rayguns.

Some of the mock up Jersey's done by people on the net, look better then the real one. Like the Cyclones one. It looked better, and sound better then thunder. It looks like out dated already.

I like the name Thunder. Says power to me. That said, I would have had a more "powerful" logo.

The Oklahoma City Thunder.

Think about the name for a bit. Stare at it on the screen. Say it aloud a bunch of times. Let it sink in.

And now, what do you think of it and why?

What do you think Jeff?
