OKC is wearing a Christmas jersey? And is this it?

You’ve already seen what appears to be the Thunder’s alternate uniform. And now via NBA 2K13, it seems that this is the Thunder’s Christmas Day jersey when they rematch the Heat in Miami, according to Steve Noah of Operation Sports.

By all appearances, Thunder is spelled right. So that’s a plus.

Update: Evidently every team playing on Christmas is getting a “Winter Court” jersey.

jameshardensbeard
2012-10-10 14:33:31
@diddoff not a huge deal, but it is sorta nice when the jersey's we got in the first place were pretty bad by most accounts. Plus, we are like the only team that didn't have one already.

@diddoff A big reason for why teams do alternate jerseys is that if they use them only for special occasions and then sell them only at those occasions, then they make a lot of money on jersey sales.  Also, you see auctions for alternate jerseys where the money raised by auction goes to a specific charity...      So all and all, the purpose for Alternate jerseys is to make money

I downloaded it this morning and it actually has all the teams new alternate jerseys not just the thunder. Many of which have already been confirmed. So for all the people that don't like these alternates, sorry but they ARE the real alternates. Minus the fact that 2k misspelled thunder.

Seriously though, does anyone else think that the Lakers might be better served having Gasol come off the bench with Howard there.

@OBoymuzik  @ou_sas  @EatSleepThunder  OBoy - And your point is.......what exactly? Point me to a single post - much less "a million" - that featured the Go-Gos. Don't mess with me boy, or that free OU-Texas ticket on the ramp may go up for sale later tonight.

@cleandoe  @Tronchaser  @booles Man I be semitrolling those dudes, particularly on that topic. But I mean what I say. I'll tip at a restaurant, but anywhere else, more than likely not. So at the same time, I don't use"services" anyways. I am a big, independent dude. I can carry my own bags, open my own door, push the elevator button myself, etv. If you choose to help me, fine and I'll say thanx, but I'm not paying you shiz
