Default OKC team name NOT Thunder?

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

Quote:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)—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.

The NBA and the team have refused to discuss possible new names for the team formerly known as the Seattle SuperSonics ahead of an official announcement, which has not yet been scheduled.

edit: Hey mod, wanna edit that "OCK" in the title to "OKC?"

And "Marshalls" is a misspelling. I know, sometimes Americans add the extra L, but it should only be used in a name as far as I'm concerned.

Black people(Im black myself), Hispanics(mainly mexicans,guatlans and small amout of puerto rican), Indians(india), Iranian(meet alot of those)Native Americans oh and white people(which thats the only race people think is here this isn't Utah!!!!!!

Gangs Crips,Bloods,Surenos(mexican gang of the nation).
Sports is really big here thats why we're getting a team.

You'll only see Cowboy if you went to a nobody town in oklahoma. and we dont' have ascents just your normal American acsent.

Also we don't have hicks(havent seen any) here, just because we're next Texas doesn't mean anything. Cowboys yes in some areas.

Oklahoma is all about kindness and growth. People dislike us simply because they know nothing about us just because they saw Footloose and Saving Grace(great show but bad image for the state cus its more like TX and Mempis)they all of OK is like that! theres not that much racism here either.

Only reason i wrote this cus the sterotypes are out of control.

Nice Rant.

He's right though I've been to Oklahoma and there really isn't anything that all these stero types suggest there is.

I know you mean well, but a lot of okies do have accents and there are definately hicks. Not that that is a bad thing. If you get out of the metro areas you will see them. I work in the oilfield and trust me there are hicks
