What do they have in Oklahoma, anyway?

So, it looks like the Sonics are definitely leaving Seattle, but a judge says they can’t bring the team name or colors with them.  So, when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook take the floor next season in Oklahoma City, what team will they be playing for?

I really only know one thing about Oklahoma City, and I don’t think the fans will be able to get behind a franchise called “The Oklahoma City Bombers.” 

So, let’s learn together, with help from our friends at wikipedia.

What was once a city known as a regional center of federal agencies and energy exploration has expanded and diversified to include sectors such as biotechnology, information technology, services, health services,

Can we call them the “Oklahoma City Biotechs”? Probably not.  Let’s move on

Oklahoma City has a severe weather season from March through August, especially during April and May. Tornadoes have occurred in every month of the year. Oklahoma City has been struck by more tornadoes than any other metropolitan area in the United States.[citation needed] It suffered one of the most powerful tornadoes on record, an F-5 on the Fujita Scale, with wind speeds topping 320 mph (510 km/h). Parts of southern Oklahoma City and nearby communities were devastated by the tornado on May 3, 1999.

The “Oklahome City F5” may actually work.. though, once again, the victims may not be happy.  So, back to wiki

Oklahoma City was settled on April 22, 1889, when the area known as the “unassigned lands” was opened for settlement in “The Oklahoma Land Run”. Some 10,000 homesteaders settled what is now downtown Oklahoma City and created a tent city in a single day. Within 10 years the population had doubled in what became a permanent settlement and the future capital of Oklahoma.

This is probably the direction they’ll go in. The Oklahoma City Landrunners or Homesteads. Unless there’s some sort of animal that lives near there, which would throw this whole study right out the window.
