Oklahoma City Thunder Announced

The Oklahoma City franchise unveiled their new name and logo to the media yesterday.  From hundreds of entries, the owners have decided to name the franchise the Thunder.

Team chairman Clay Bennett said the light blue color coincides with the state flag to represent the inclusion of all Oklahomans, the yellow refers to the sun and the reddish-orange color to the sunset. With the University of Oklahoma featuring crimson as its primary color, and Oklahoma State using orange, Bennett said it was “not too red and not too orange.”
