    Possible nicknames for new NBA team in Oklahoma City

    NBA files for rights to 6 nicknames - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

    One of the final team nicknames is Energy. Doesn't sound like that may be what they end up with but if it does will the Iowa D-League team have to change its name since they aren't affiliated with that franchise?

    I like the Energy in Iowa so I hope they stay clear of it...

    Re: Possible nicknames for new NBA team in Oklahoma City

    Why wasn't Tornados one of the options, or Dust Bowls, or the Oklahoma O.K.'s? Looks like they picked the wrong guy to come up with some cool names.
