Thunder Get New “OKC” Uniforms; Wonder if the OSU/OU Issue will come up?

Orange, brash, with a large “OKC” on the front with the number and the name of the player below the number on the back.  The new uniforms the Oklahoma City Thunder will debut this season will be worn in 18 contests of the 82 game season.  They will be worn both at home and on the road. (see schedule below of those games they are to be worn) Other NBA teams do the same with their alternate uniforms. The Thunder will wear their blue pin stripe down the side uniforms this yea and their alternate whites but no word on which games.  This gives the Thunder 5 uniform choices going into the 2015-16 season (with two white home and a 6th if you count the Christmas uniform which is worn only the Christmas day.

On a side note, I wonder if the use of orange as a primary color on a uniform will be greeted with approval by Thunder fans that are also Oklahoma State followers and greeted with disdain from Oklahoma Sooner faithful.  I think that Longhorn fans of the Thunder, along with Kevin Durant, will enjoy wearing the color, even if it is not “burnt” orange.  If you are a supporter of either of the three schools, OSU, OU or UT, please send me a comment below and tell me your feelings if it has any meaning to you.
