Hello Friday. Nice to finally meet again. Here are the Rumblings…
So 2K released their All-Time teams for each team in the league, and the Thunder’s team was mostly filled with Sonics players (because of our current shared history). And, of course, Seattle Twitter had a field day with it.
Russell Westbrook has yet to sign his extension, but according to ESPN’s Royce Young, nothing has really changed and there isn’t really any urgency to worry yet: “The primary difference, and it could be key, is the years.

The SnapChat account for the Oklahoma City Thunder gave a preview of what the new Nike jerseys will look like. The two jerseys pictured were what used to be known as the home whites and the road blues. The home whites will now be known as the Association Edition jerseys, while the road blues will now be known as the Icon Edition jerseys.
This upcoming season, the home team will choose what jersey they will be wearing and the road team will then have to wear a contrasting jersey. The home and away aspect of the jerseys will be going away.
As far as the jerseys go, if you have seen the screen capture of the upcoming NBA 2K18 game with Paul George, then you have already seen what the Association uniform will look like. Here’s the Thunder’s SnapChat via UpTheThunder.
Each team will have four jerseys to choose from. The Player’s Mindset jersey and the Community jersey will be unveiled at a later date. Nike will officially take over as the NBA’s outfitter on October 1st, 2017.
