I used to be the "man if I die I die, I'm not running I'm not scared" until I got cornered by one last year while I was at the bar drinking.

I got in my truck too late and got stuck in an open parking lot. The trees were literally being sucked out of the ground and my truck was being blown sideways bruh. Sideways on the ground!

I was so scared man, I had to park next to the Academy Building and just wait it out. It lasted like 15 minutes, no cell service to call my Mother and say I love you bye before I died(I thought I was about to die)

After that, I don't want to die man, I love life, and I definitely won't be chasing a Tornado for pics man.

Shouldn't OKC be called OKC Tornado and not thunder???


I thought the thunder was intentionally some what ambiguous as it could be either thunder from the storms or the "thunder" from a herd of buffalo running.

Origins. a few interesting ones

http://mentalfloss.com/article/23115/origins-all-30-nba-team-names
Quote:
Boston Celtics

Team owner Walter Brown personally chose Celtics over Whirlwinds, Olympians, and Unicorns (yes, Unicorns) as the nickname for Boston's Basketball Association of America team in 1946. Despite the warnings of one of his publicity staffers, who told Brown, "No team with an Irish name has ever won a damned thing in Boston," Brown liked the winning tradition of the nickname; the New York Celtics were a successful franchise during the 1920s.
Quote:
Chicago Bulls

According to the Chicago Bulls Encyclopedia, team owner Richard Klein was brainstorming nicknames for his new franchise in 1966 and wanted a name that portrayed Chicago's status as the meat capital of the world. Klein was considering Matadors and Toreadors when his young son exclaimed, "Dad, that's a bunch of bull!" The rest is somewhat dubious history.
Quote:
Cleveland Cavaliers

Fans voted Cavaliers the team nickname in 1970 in a poll conducted by the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. The other finalists included Jays, Foresters, Towers, and Presidents. The Presidents nickname was presumably an allusion to the fact that seven former U.S. Presidents were born in Ohio, second only to Virginia. Jerry Tomko, who suggested Cavaliers in the contest, wrote, "Cavaliers represent a group of daring fearless men, whose life pact was never surrender, no matter what the odds." (Tomko's son, Brett, has been a big league pitcher since 1997.)
Quote:
Miami Heat

In October 1986, the owners of Miami's expansion franchise selected Stephanie Freed's Heat submission from more than 20,000 entries, which also included Sharks, Tornadoes, Beaches, and Barracudas.

As far as I can tell, the only teams that have nicknames with nothing associated with the city are:

Hornets
Hawks
Wizards
Warriors
Cavilers
Nets
Trailblazers
Raptors


Teams that moved and kept relevant name:
Jazz
Kings
Grizzlies
