The Oklahoma City Thunder is a professional basketball franchise based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Seattle SuperSonics franchise had moved to Oklahoma, which meant that there was a new team name (Oklahoma City Thunder). Because of this, the Thunder replaced Seattle in the Western Conference's Northwest Division[1] and began play at Oklahoma City's Ford Center (later renamed Chesapeake Energy Arena) during the 2008–09 NBA season.[2]
