Durant, Westbrook, Jeff Green and the legend is... Rumble the Bison!!
No Shawn Kemp, no Payton, no Dale Ellis.
Honestly. with this being NBA Jam, I think it is awesome that you can have Rumble the Bison flipping through the air coming down like a meteor to shatter the backboard.
Besides that, I also think it is good to differentiate ourselves from the Sonics. Those guys are Sonics players. Great guys, but they were not, nor ever will be, identified as Thunder players.
A wound can't heal if you keep picking at it. To add players that are so clearly a part of the Sonics past would just be a slap in the face to Sonics fans. Leaving them be seems like the classiest move to make.

We definitely need to let the "dead bury the dead!"
Seattle was always concerned about OKC Thunder using their history and the more we mention their history and start menting our own--the better off we will be.
The Lakers still drag some excess baggage from having relocationed from Minneapolis--lot less since the Timerwolves are in Minnepaul & St. Apolis.
We are now beginning to mold our own Oklahoma City Thunder history and the sooner Seattle gets another NBA franchise, the better off we will be.

I think they should of had a Seattle Legends choice but just leave it separate to the OKC thunder team. I think that would of been the best way to do it. I know if I was getting this game I would want Kemp and Payton. It seems like a waste to leave them off the game... They didn't have to be placed under OKC.
Our legend should have been Robert Swift or Damien Wilkens.
does this mean I need to not wear my Thunder - Kemp #40 jersey?
