Surely you recognize these two fine looking gentleman (and Russell Westbrook of UCLA). Although he won’t wear the No. 23 this upcoming season (Marcus Camby pulled seniority), new Clipper Eric Gordon posed for the rookie photo shoot wearing the number he wore in Bloomington. I’m not quite sure how he got talked into that pose, but the look on his face leads me to believe he wasn’t too happy about it. D.J., on the other hand, looks thrilled. I’m really going to miss that kid.

    I like how the Seattle, err, Oklahoma City team doesn't have a name or, apparently, a jersey.

  • hoosier07

  • Ryan_T

    Aren't they going to be called the “Thunder”?

    … and yeah, please tell me that that's a warm-up jersey and not the official game jersey.

    The whole sky thing I don't get it? And the pose is not the most masculine thing either….poor kid….well….poor kid with 10 million…….

  • Gordon has the same expression on his face that he always has.

    They have not decided on a name yet for the OKC team its between Thunder Barons Bison Wind and something else gay. It'll end up being the Thunder tho i personally like the OKC Twisters as the name because of tornado valley. I am excited for DJ's Career will def. make me and OKC fan he is going to be a big part of what they are trying to do…..five years the line up will be good

    Westbrook
    Durant

    What is up with DJ's elbow? Is he glowing?

  • msdiu81

    Can't wait to open up packs of basketball cards and get DJ and EJ cards!! Looking forward to it.

    Thunder sounds like a lame MLS team name or something. Give me a break. But i read that OKC has a National Women's Football Team called the Lightning…

    Thunder and Lightning…interesting…

  • MikeinNC

    I like the Cyclones….the Twisters sounds too much like a game you play at a party when you are really drunk…Thunder or Lightning wouldn't be too bad…hope they don't end up as the Bisons or the Barons…DJ looks really happy, he certainly has earned that….

    This is the first time we have seen DJ smile in 4 years…….

    I love DJ's big goofy smile. My family has called him Bubba (after Bubba Blue in forest gump) after that special on IU before the UConn game a couple of years ago. They showed this profile silhouette that emphasized the fact that he has a huge bottom lip.
