The team was originally established as the Seattle SuperSonics during the 1967-1968 season and were moved in 2008 after a lawsuit.

The SuperSonic featured NBA superstars like Hall of Famer Lenny Wilkens and Bill Russell. After the team’s move and rebranding, the Oklahoma City Thunder had a hard time rebuilding themselves, but quickly rebounded for success. During the 2009-2010 season, the Thunder qualified for their first NBA playoffs, won their first division title in the 2010-2011 season, and scored their first Western Conference Championship in the 2011-2012 season, appearing in the NBA Finals for the fourth time in franchise history since 1996. Thunder games against their rival, the San Antonio Spurs get especially heated, as the two clubs have clashed in the playoffs multiple times.
