The schedule is out at and we open against the Bucks and our season ends at home pretty early. The only televised game we have is against the Hornets, reminds me of when the Hornets were here and they never put us on tv.

You can't copy and paste or give a link???

They won't put us on tv much until we're good. The Hornets are on television 13 times this coming year. It's not about the size of the market, as much as it is the likelihood of national interest in the team playing.

I think it's the interest factor of how the crowd will react to the old versus new teams here that got the Hornets game with us televised.

And the OKC team still has a shot to land 90+ games on NBATV that haven't been announced yet

^^ If that happens, Cox needs to roll out NBA TV in HD.

08-06-2008, 12:18 PM
Yea it would be a shame if they didn't... Although I dont have an HD tv so I dont really care.

NBA Schedule site has them as the Seattle Supersonics.

Thanks bro.

Anyone know whos gonna pickin up the local games?

Surely the locally televised games will be filled in. Maybe they're still working out contracts with Cox? Why would they spend the money to upgrade the facility with HD capabilities if they were only to have one game broadcast nationally? The radio slot is blank & we all know that WWLS is in partnership with them for broadcasting rights.

Check this out. Scroll over any date on OKC's schedule--let's say for example Sunday, November 2 against Minnesota--and you will notice a hyperlink to

When you click on it, you get "SORRY, PAGE NOT FOUND."

Maybe it's just a ruse, but I don't think so.

Why would a programmer take the time to set up these links with a name that has not been officially released...only to replace all the links later? If they were doing that, I would think they would just use Seattle SuperSonics (

So it appears Mister Rodgers was right all along about things in his neighborhood.

Wow, good find...

OKC Thunder...

It does kinda have a ring to it!

Why are the news guys in OKC not as quick and bright as the okctalk forum members?
Never mind it answers itself.

I've just posted my own schedule, too, at Doug Dawgz Blog: OKC 2008-2009 Schedule & Results (

That's where I'll be "keeping score" with results and attendance this season. When the preseason schedule is released, I'll add that. You can click on any team city to have a look at its arena and capacity.

If anyone sees errors, please let me know and I'll fix them.

I've also added an OKC In NBA "index" page for quick reference to our NBA history so far: Doug Dawgz Blog: OKC in the NBA Index (

I've added a flash slide show at the top of my blog schedule page: Doug Dawgz Blog: OKC 2008-2009 Schedule & Results ( ... using AC/DC's Thunderstruck as the sound.

It is still a work in progress (obviously the arena shots will be our local team pics when they become available) and I'd value your suggestions about improving the video file. It is presently in its 4th version.

The file is at the top of the schedule page, as shown below (which is only a graphic here ... clicking the graphic will do nothing):

Of course, if "Thunder" is NOT chosen for the team name, it's back to square one! :dizzy:

upisgr8, In the present version, I added non-downtown images ... is that good or would it be better to keep a downtown focus?
