Default Stripped of Sonics colors, logo, OKC starts over in summer league

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3477059

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The uniforms arrived in time, black mesh with white stripes along the sides, the words "Oklahoma City" across the front of the jersey and atop a simple NBA logo.

Around the bench, there was barely any SuperSonics green or gold in sight.

And with that, Oklahoma City's latest NBA storyline got off to a simple start.

The color they wore today is not a preview of what there colors might be.

But hey, can you answer me this question. I was reading a blog on Truehoop that said Clay Bennett retains the rights to use the Sonics name/colors/history but doesn't intend to use them, saying he "will return them to the team if a team returns to Seattle in the term."

Is that true? If so it contridicts everything I thought I previously heard.

Heres the link

OKC Outlaws is the best option, in my opinion.

Should've just stayed in Seattle...

it was the "shared history" part of settlement

this is what the seattle PI had this morning:

According to the agreement, if Seattle is granted an expansion team in the next five years, that franchise will share the Sonics' history with the Oklahoma City team.

If Seattle lands a team through relocation of an existing franchise, most likely the Oklahoma City team will retain sole possession of the Sonics history.

Rooting for the Blazers makes the most sense:

- They are now the closest team to Seattle.

- Their coach is Mr. Sonic himself.

- Paul Allen has Seattle roots and also owns the Seattle Seahawks.

- Roy played 4 years at Washington.

- Webster grew up in and was drafted out of Seattle.

And They voted against the relocation. They will probably be my team.
