Thread: NBA Team Name

  1. #226

    Default Re: What should the OKC Sonics be renamed to?

    I don't know about the OKC Fuel, especially with the raising fuel prices. It has an instant negative conotation. That would apply more so for fans outside of OK but the NBA will be thinking about marketing on a domestic and international scale. I don't think they will approve Fuel for the team name.

    The best one I have heard recently is Oklahoma City Vortex which is a different play on Tornadoes.

    Barons sounds like Barrens to me. Dislike that name the most. However we could call the female dance team the Bare-ems...

    Yeah, I don't like Barons much either. The black and gold needs to go too. It's difficult to imagine all the black that would be involved in a playoff series between OKC and San Antonio.

    Regulators... MOUNT UP!!!

    It covers both western and hip-hop themes.

  5. Default Re: What should the OKC Sonics be renamed to?

    Regulators reminds me of Prunes, Fiber, Kaopectate or Exlax.... but that is just what comes to mind when I hear it.

    I like Vortex as well..

    I know people like the name Tornadoes but I worry about that negative connotation as well.. Vortex might be the same category but maybe not quite as violent.

    This is hard... I'm just hoping and praying we don't end up with a cheesy name but if you look at all the NBA names, a lot of them are pretty lame.

    I agree with you on both points. Vortex is a different take on tornadoes which do identify the region, but veer enough to avoid the life-changing consequences people may think of when they hear OKC Tornadoes. I'm in favor of Vortex or Tornadoes with a slight lean towards the Oklahoma City Vortex.

    Another tribute to the aviation industry/history of Oklahoma:

    OKC Afterburners

    I think we should go with "OKC Sausages" to support our western counties hog industry......colors, naturally would be "Blue & Gold"...hahahahahah

    You would think this wouldn't be so hard... that there is a name of something that instantly identifies us.. unites us.. OU Sooners are powerful because they have made themselves so. And it describes where we began. OSU Cowboys. Oklahoma City Blazers.. Oklahoma City .. up and coming.. forward momentum.. suprising.. powerful.. gathering steam.. helpful.. the landrush all over again.. this time with focus.. .. what name will give tribute to all of this?

    Taking a page from soccer...OKC United.

    How about the OKC Storm?

  12. Default Re: What should the OKC Sonics be renamed to?

    The Storm is Seattle's WNBA team.

    Default Re: What should the OKC Sonics be renamed to?

    OKC Riders

    connects with RoughRiders (or maybe RR is a good name?)
    connects with western theme without being too campy

  14. Default Re: What should the OKC Sonics be renamed to?

    Whatever the name is, I propose O-City be used in the name.

    It will, that's already been finalized.

    Even though I HATED the "Thunder", hows about a spinoff?
    OKC Bolts

    I know it's a loose affiliation, but I can only think of the San Diego Chargers when I hear Bolts.

    All recent news thing considered, I'm glad another in-state team already has Dawgs all tied up

    Boy, the sports fans in Iowa have come up with some clever ideas.

    I love it that a miserable state like Iowa is making fun of OKC.

    To be honest, I'm noticing alot of hostility around the country over this deal.

    Even back when Oklahoma City was trying to 'steal' the Hornets from New Orleans...and now we've pretty much weazeled our way into getting the Sonics.

    A majority of America expects and hopes that we fail.

    There has already been mention of the team leaving the lucrative Northwest for the iffy Southwest. It'll be interesting to see if "they" are right or not. BTW-I guess I had forgotten about the Storm being the Seattle WNBA team, so scratch that one! How about the Cowchips?

    Oklahoma Torch - logo Blowtorch
    Oklahoma Pride - logo Lion
    Oklahoma Ice
    Oklahoma Tribe
    Oklahoma Stealth
    Oklahoma Pirates or Swashbucklers

    If they name the team the Thunder they should have two mascots dressed like thundersticks and they can run into each other

    Another NBA team, the Milwaukee Bucks, already have the name.

    Outsiders will be saying that about us forever; that won't change.

    What will change is that their remarks about us will go from "insulting" (because they're supposedly better than us) to "hating" (because they wanna get like us) soon enough.

    Success is always the best revenge, and I am sooooo proud to be here in my city right now.
    That's exactly why I'm at work right now, and still can't tear myself away from savoring this moment.
