regarding the logo, there will probably be a change as soon as the lack of fan enthusiasm

we in seattle lost our sonics and this is what has replaced it?


i envy the people of okc for being able to watch nba action this season. i do not envy that they have a squirrel of an owner who has again shown his lack of nba savvy--this time with this middle school logo

Thunder......OK(C) This is what sticks out to me.

Not only is it difficult to represent the natural occurrence knows as "thunder" as part of a logo (Which is not even attempted here- since they opted to simply spell out the word.), BUT the letters OK are identified by people outside of Oklahoma as the expression, "OK," and with the "C" almost being the size of a lower case letter, the OK sticks out too much.

"Thunder" is usually associated with power, and this logo does nothing to make me think of power.

Maybe they should have used "OK City," with Thunder being the smaller word.

Even better, though, would have been a more usable word than Thunder for your team name.

Sticking with the nature theme, perhaps "Tornadoes" would have been better- at least you can see a tornado, and Oklahoma has had some bad ones over the years.

I expect that with time, the logo will change, but this is hardly an inspiring start.

I think they should try another approach with the logo. It doesn't remind me of an NBA team. It looks closer to laundry detergent branding to me. Not trying to be picky but just helping. Try some more options OKC. I don't really see the thunder. Play with that some more.

I hate to break it to you, but you can't actually see thunder...Now if they had an audio file linked to the logo, that would be sweet.

Should've went with Barons. Uniforms were way better to work with, the logo could've been tweaked. I mean really WTF are you going to have a logo for thunder? A lightening bolt? It's Thunder not lightening. A dark a** rain cloud? LOL

I like it though its not bad. there are worse logos.

I agree. The word Thunder looks like it was done with WordArt from PowerPoint. I'm wondering if they purposely made it bland and generic so they could change it later without being stuck to a certain theme. Just think of the evolution the Jazz logo has undergone over the years...

Early years...
