Home with the Oklahoma City Thunder, this stadium is home to a team that is both dearly beloved and hated by some. The hate comes from their history as a franchise that was once known as the formidable and NBA Finals contenders of the Seattle Supersonics. The team was moved to OKC in 2008 and the rest is history. Seattle fans no longer have a team to cheer for, but OKC is now a city with an exciting basketball team that shows promise every year.
