Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder is an American professional basketball team based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Thunder competes in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member club of the league’s Western Conference Northwest Division. The team plays its home games at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Thunder’s NBA Development League affiliate is the Oklahoma City Blue, which it owns. The Thunder is the only team in the major professional North American sports leagues based in the state of Oklahoma.
The team was originally established as the Seattle SuperSonics, an expansion team that joined the NBA for the 1967-1968 season. The SuperSonics relocated in 2008 after a settlement was reached between the ownership group led by Clay Bennett and lawmakers in Seattle, Washington following a lawsuit. In Seattle, the SuperSonics qualified for the NBA playoffs 22 times, won their division six times, and won the 1979 NBA Championship. In Oklahoma City, the Thunder qualified for their first playoff berth during the 2009-2010 season. They followed that success by winning their first division title as the Thunder in the 2010-2011 season and their first Western Conference championship as the Thunder in the 2011-2012 season, appearing in the NBA Finals for the fourth time in franchise history and first since 1996, when the club was based in Seattle.
Oklahoma City Thunder City Jersey
The Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday unveiled its version of the Nike 2021/22 Oklahoma City Thunder city Jersey.
The Oklahoma City Thunder City Jersey honors the most meaningful community connections and moments in the team’s history while also honoring the NBA’s 75th anniversary.
Designed in partnership with Nike, the uniform’s ice-white diamond base honors the NBA’s diamond anniversary. The vertical lettering design celebrates the 13-year journey of the thunder, including its debut, development, rise and future.
“These elements represent the foundation of the legacy that we continue to build on, together –our brand, team, fans, city, and state,” said Brian Byrnes, the Thunder’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “This uniform tells the story of us and how we’ve made our mark in the league and connected with our community. The most exciting part is that there’s much more to come. We’ve been at it for 13 years and we’re really just getting started.”
The Oklahoma City Thunder City Jersey 21/22 represents the rise of Thunder Basketball and features a logo on the belt buckle of the shorts that was inspired by the original NBA-OKC logo that made its debut at the 2008 Summer League. Another aspect that is included in the classic home white uniforms, which represent the Thunder’s ever-growing roots in the community.
To honor meaningful firsts created by the Thunder’s presence, including the birth of Loud City, aspects of the 2012 navy alternative uniform and sound waves from the first Statement Edition in 2019 run down the right side of the jersey.
