Top 10 names for the Oklahoma City Thunder Dance Team…

I originally got the idea for this post about a month or so ago, but the Red Dirt Kings were able to read my mind and kind of stole it from me. At first this made me mad, but then Clark Matthews reminded me about the most recent group of people who were able to read my mind: the Oklahoma City Honeybees.

You see, the Honeybees were able to read from my superior brain that I wanted to wear a Zorro mask and have a big orgy with all of them. Look at what that got them. Absolutely nothing. The Hornets moved back to New Orleans and now all the Oklahoma City based Honeybees are former NBA dance team members…at least for a little while.

Anyway, I have no clue if this tale has a moral, and if it does, what it is, but I do know this: always wear a Zorro mask. It makes it extremely difficult for the people reading your mind to identify you.

Check out the Top 10 Dance Team Names are after the jump…

10. Diamond Dolls
This would be a nice tribute to the old Oklahoma City 89er’s “Diamond Dolls” and “Diamond Girls”, who were first group of young, hot Oklahoma City chicks to wear skimpy outfits and throw t-shirts to drunk guys and young children.

9. Thunder Thighs
This name is a bit too easy. But…it still deserves to rank in the Top 10.

8. Raindrops
Imagine how cool it would be if they threw the Raindrops onto the heads of unsuspecting fans.

7. Talors
Without a doubt, Honeybee Talor was the best and hottest Honeybee. Not only would naming the team after her be a fitting tribute, but maybe she’ll even come back as a dancer. Then she would be Talors Talor.

6. Sprinkles
This was Sarah’s number one pick, because this is what all the football players called her in high school. Oddly enough, it’s what the football players called Clark Matthews, too.

5. Pink Robots
This was my choice for actual nickname of the franchise. The “Pink Robots” refers to The Flaming Lips masterpiece “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.” Since it apparently didn’t catch on, maybe it will be a good name for the dance team instead.

4. Thunderbees
The Hornets had the Honeybee’s, so why can’t we have the Thunderbees? The only issue appears to be that it’s the name of a kids hockey team.

3. Hooker Echoes
Noticed how I took the high road an used a picture of a hook echo and not a hooker? That’s because I’m classy. This could actually be a great name for the team. Hook Echos are a dangerous part of Oklahoma City life, and a lot of women rank NBA dance team members only a notch or two above hookers. Plus, The Video Vigilante and Gary England could be our mascot!

2. Nimbostratuses
The nimbostratus is cloud. Thunder comes from clouds, right? Also, this would give all the feminists out there ample opportunity to call the dance team the “Bimbostratuses.”

1. Snarfs
The NBA announcing crew that covered the Thunder’s summer league games referred to the team as The Thundercats. I must admit that’s a pretty awesome name. The only thing that could equal it would be if we called the dance team The Snarfs. The Snarfs”“for all those of you born after 1981″“were the nice little furry creatures that assisted The Thundercats in their battles against evil. The most popular one was, well, Snarf.

Anyway, that’s the list. If you have some better ones, let us know in the comments. Hopefully, Clay Bennett and Friends will listen to us this time around. Also, if they need any help picking out the dancers, I will graciously volunteer my time. Snarf Snarf.


  1. I think Talor has been to busy hanging out with Kid Rock (ugh) to worry about coming back.

    Kid Rock has fallen for an exotic dancer.

    The rocker is dating sexy Talor Reazin, according to reports.

    The pair was spotted enjoying a romantic meal together earlier this month (Jan08), and the 21-year-old blonde has been telling pals she and the 37-year-old rocker are an item.

    A friend says, “She thinks he’s Prince Charming. They’ve been dating for several weeks and he has been chivalrous and kind to her. She hopes it lasts.”

    Kid Rock has also been romantically linked to Scandinavian model May Andersson after splitting from his wife Pam Anderson last year (07).

    A picture of Reazin when she tried out as a Hornet Honeybee can be found here. (c) WENN

    Exotic Dancer? Where?!?

  2. Talor and that dirt bag Kid Rock are old news. She is living in Dallas with her long time boyfriend. Not exactly sure where they got it that she was an exotic dancer. I like the Lightning Bugs for a name. They could lower the lights in the Ford Center and the Lighting Bugs would run out with lit up butts.

  3. If we call them Thundercats, will the crowd yell, “HO” when they are on the court, like Lion-o did in the cartoon?

  4. I was going to suggest the Thunder Claps, or just the Claps, but the 1st commenter beat me to it.

    How about the Warm Fronts?

    Anything but Thundercats…

  5. Claymates…outstanding name! I rarely, if ever agree with Sooner people, but Mr. Ken, you may be on to something here.

  6. Once again was Talor’s mom drunk when she named her? Or could she not spell?

    How about the Oklahoma City White Trash Cleetchasers?

  7. Kid Rock is using OKC to get some tail. A few years ago, I saw him at the Wormy Dog in Bricktown with Moore’s own Jesse Jane.

  8. They should have named the team The OKC Tornadoes, and the cheerleaders could have been called “The Twisters”….

    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it…..

    OK. I guess if the team is called “Thunder”, shouldn’t the Cheerleaders be called “Lightning”…..

    Kinda “FLASHY” sounding, huh????
