Oklahoma City Thunder

American professional basketball team based in Oklahoma City, United States

The Oklahoma City Thunder (abbreviated OKC) are an American professional basketball franchise based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Seattle SuperSonics franchise had moved to Oklahoma, which meant that there was a new team name (Oklahoma City Thunder). Because of this, the Thunder replaced Seattle in the Western Conference's Northwest Division[7] and began play at Oklahoma City's Ford Center, now known as Paycom Center, during the 2008–09 NBA season.[8]
