Thunder has been part of this franchise for some 12 years and his likeness is featured on the team’s primary logo, though the team doesn’t use that image much anymore.
Warriors team president Robert Rowell is willing to make the switch for the benefit of the other Thunder, formerly the Seattle SuperSonics. When the timing’s right, that is.
“We’re clearly going to do something to accommodate Oklahoma City and not have our mascot named Thunder,” Rowell said. “For the sake of not making things confusing, we’re going to do something. We just have to figure out a good exit strategy.”
My Question of the week is this: Is this change a coincidence or did Robert Rowell read this article which was posted only 4 short days ago?
You know Robert reads Uncoached. I’m reaching team owners now? Watch out.
