Seattle TV station refuses to mention OKC Thunder by its name during NBA playoffs

Posted: Updated:
The bitterness felt by Seattle SuperSonics fans apparently will not go away, even six years after the team moved to Oklahoma City.

A Seattle TV station KIRO 7 is taking a bold move by vowing not to mention "Oklahoma City Thunder" or any variation of the team's name at all during their newscasts.

The station even posted its intentions on its facebook page, "The former Seattle SuperSonics are in the NBA playoffs. Throughout their run, KIRO 7 promises you we won't say OKC or their team name in our newscasts."

Instead, they'll be listing the team's name as the "Former Sonics."

The team moved from Seattle to OKC in 2008.
