First of all, this statement from the Thunder is ridiculously inane:

“We’re excited to tell the story of our team, our fans and our hometown with this new alternate uniform,” said Brian Byrnes, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing for the Thunder. “We believe the uniform embodies the spirit of this city, with simple and forward-looking design elements that showcase the three letters that resonate in our arena and have come to represent our team and our community: OKC.”

But once you get past that, I like these.

Sure, the sleeves are always a negative. But otherwise, it’s a very clean and simple look. The orange and blue really pop against the white. Plus, I like the names on the back below the number.
