OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -As Oklahoma City's NBA team prepared to reveal its name and logo, the NBA's Web site showed ``Thunder'' as the name and the color scheme as blue, yellow and orange.
The franchise planned to formally reveal the team's nickname, colors and logo at 5 p.m. CDT.
Earlier this week, a handful of NBA team Web sites, including that of the Orlando Magic, offered tickets for games against ``the Thunder.''
Oklahoma City television station KOCO reported in late July that ``Thunder'' would be the nickname, but team officials have refused to comment on the report.
