Word is that OKC's possible names would be the Barons or the Thunder. I can't imagine they would go with Barons since most people would probably think of Robber Barons instead of Oil Barons given the circumstances.

How about the Oklahoma City Bombers?

OK, I know...boo and in very poor taste, but, hell, let's face it, 90% of the country knows only that about OKC.

Don't think that's going to fly in a league that changed a team's name from the "Bullets" to the"Wizards" due to the prevalence of gun violence in said team's city.

Woot! We get a team. lol

I think it'll end up being the Thunder...even though I hate that name for an NBA team. I wanted Outlaws. lol

Moving from the 14th biggest market to the 40 something biggest market will not help the NBA at all but hurt it.

The only real reason they even moved there is because of the fact that Clay Bennett is from Oklahoma City. I think it's pathetic. The NBA should not have allowed the move. Though I believe if they are as well taken as OK City took in the Hornets for the few games they had there, it will work.
