It appears that the new Oklahoma City Thunder alternate uniforms have been leaked by NBA 2K13.
A grainy photo of Kevin Durant is this uniform popped up a few days ago and now it seems that photo was legit. NBA 2K13 has hidden in the game alternate uniforms for every team. NBA 2K13 accidentally leaked the new Brooklyn Nets uniform earlier this month before the game’s release.
Thunder GM Sam Presti said back on media day that there would be new alternate uniforms unveiled this season for the Thunder. Then a photo was leaked from NBA 2K13 that looked to be the new alternate jersey for the Thunder.
Now two more photos have been revealed and it seems pretty close to confirmed that this is what the alternate uniform will be for the Thunder this season. It is odd though that “Thunder” is spelled incorrectly on this jersey. Hope that’s fixed for the game.
As you can see they stray away some from their traditional colors. It looks kind of like the old Indiana Pacers ABA uniforms with the text going vertical and on the sides. It’s also overall a pretty plain look that doesn’t jump out too much at least in the video game screens.
There was some speculation that the Thunder would go with a black colored uniform for their alternate but it appears that is not the case. This alternate kind of blends with a lot of the other alternates we often see around the league with more of a throwback look to it.
It is unknown for now exactly when the Thunder will wear these alternate uniforms and how often they will. Teams usually sport different uniforms for nationally televised games so we can expect that from the Thunder as well.
It will be cool to see the Thunder in a different uniform this season but this is nothing too special at the end of the day.
