In the modern age of sports, we see video games becoming more and more integrated into the mainstream. It is evident by the partnerships with professional leagues and video game companies as well as the constant leaks we see coming from the virtual world. In the latest video game leak from NBA 2K13, we get a peek at the Oklahoma City Thunder’s alternate jerseys.
The most unfortunate part of this leak is the misspelling on the jerseys. 2K Sports spells out “THUDNER” on the uniforms in a slight mistake that will surely be fixed before the games official launch.
Oklahoma City has followed the recent trend in alternate uniforms by giving the team a very retro look — despite the franchise being only four years old. It is a design that will likely be met with some criticism but the simple blue and white look is very clean and gives the Thunder a fresh new look to roll out onto the hardwood.
Here is another shot of the new alternate uniforms — whichare the first ever alternates for Oklahoma City:
I really like the simplicity this look will bring. I’m sure many people will be clamoring for more intricacies and flash to the uniforms — especially considering the vibrant colors on the Thunder’s usual home and away jerseys — but the alternates are meant to be used as a change of pace and these will do just that.
What do you think of the Thunder’s new alternates? Boring, incredible or just right? Sound off in the comments section.
