The past of the Oklahoma City Thunder dates back to 1967, when Sam Shulman, a well-known businessman, and a group of shareholders obtained a share to establish an NBA franchise in Seattle.
The team was named “Seattle SuperSonics,” about the first supersonic aircraft built in the United States. The first years were challenging for the white, green, and gold team.
They failed to qualify for the playoffs until Bill Russell, historical player of the Boston Celtics and 11-time NBA champion, managed as head coach to take them there in the 1974/1975 season.
Five years later, in 1979, Seattle won its only ring under coach Lenny Wilkens, who had been one of the best players in the franchise’s short history.
After the conquest, there were a few years for the SuperSonics, who reached the playoffs but did not win the title again.
The irregularity gave way to a high profile time when in the 1989 and 1990 drafts Seattle selected Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton, who became key players.
Together with DT George Karl, a benchmark of the Supersonics, they brought excitement back to the city of Seattle and displayed a dynamic and spectacular game.
In the 1995/1996 season, the team finished with 64 wins and 18 losses and was ranked number 1 in the Western Conference.
They defeated the Sacramento Kings in the first round in the playoffs, then got rid of the Houston Rockets and defeated the Utah Jazz in the conference finals.
The NBA Finals pitted them against Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen’s Chicago Bulls, who had finished the first round with a 72-10 record (the best in history until five years ago).
