ter the brouhaha in Baltimore when the Colts took their nickname, the NFL helped broker a deal to keep the Browns in Cleveland. The name. The uniforms. The records.

And when the NFL returned to Cleveland four years later, so did the name Browns.

What do folks in Oklahoma City think its NBA team should be called?

Dozens answered that question on newsok.com Friday. Several suggested that the team retain its Sonics nickname, but most favored a name change.

Possibilities included Thunderbirds, Thunderbolts, Tornadoes, Wind, Energy, Surge, Stallions, Roughnecks and Posse.

"What's wrong with the Sonics?” Dave in Moore said. "The Oklahoma City Sonics has a good ring to it.”

Joseph in Oklahoma City said, "Leave that tradition in Seattle. That is their nickname, and we need to have our own.”
