The Oklahoma City Thunder is a professional basketball team formerly known as the “Seattle SuperSonics.” The team plays in the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association, and it calls the Ford Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, as its home court. The Thunder has been identified as the only team that is a part of the Big Four North American sports leagues that is located in Oklahoma.
The change of the team’s name occurred when the team’s owner, Clay Bennett, had to transfer the team to Oklahoma, after having a dispute with the lawmakers in Seattle, Washington. The team’s colors are light blue, gold, navy, orange-red, and white, and are currently coached by Scott Brooks.
As the Seattle SuperSonics, the team has enjoyed 6 division titles, 3 conference titles, and one NBA Championship title, which they won in 1979. However, as the Oklahoma City Thunder, the team has yet to win a single title.
