OKC 2008-2009 Schedule & Results

Updated after 2/8/2009 game

Oklahoma City Thunder Schedule & Results

Click on the above link for pics of the Ford Center
or any city name in the schedule for pics of that city's arena.

How's our attendance faring? Click here to find out.

For a flash video of AC/DC's Thunderstruck, set to
OKC scenery, click below. It will take a while to load.

This schedule will be updated as the 1st season for the Oklahoma City Thunder (officially named 9/3/2008) progresses. It will also be modified to add other features than are in this initial version. Reader comments are invited as to the data this post should contain. Click on a city link for pics and capacity of its arena -- arena capacities shown are generally what was true in 2006 and that may have changed. In the Opening Night game, the 19,136 attendance was deemed a sellout so the Ford Center's seating capacity is evidently less than the 19,164 capacity during the Hornet's last season here. If an OKC home game is a sellout, the attendance number will be red, as shown for the pending regular season opening game, below. The official logo for the Thunder appears at the right (adapted by me to show a black background).

HOW'S OUR ATTENDANCE? The table/spreadsheet below matches Oklahoma City against itself for paid attendance. It compares how Oklahoma City did when it hosted the Hornets and shows how its doing with its own team. For good or for ill, the numbers will speak for themselves as the season progresses. At this point, Oklahoma City is slightly above its previous 2-season average attendance. For an NBA comparison, Oklahoma City ranks 12th in the NBA. Go to ESPN's attendance rankings for more detail.

That is a great job on the video. I am very excited about the NBA coming here as well as the name. Thanks for all the contributions you make to the and

Thanks, guys. The video is evolving ... wish I could do better with it.

Awesome video. You are a great ambassador for the City. Thanks to you, Betts and others who take time and effort to put together Blogs, Web Sites, and other sites dedicated to our past, present, and future.

The attendance chart is useless. That is paid attendance not butts in the seats. Your chart has no bearing since it will never ever drop below the season tickets sold, which we all know is not the true measure of attendance.

I don't mean to offend, and I think the number of season tickets sold is incredible but the chart is basically a wall of lies considering we all know attendance is not nearly as high as your chart suggests.

Anon, when better figures become known to me, I'll use them. For now, reports from the NBA are what I have to go by. And, for comparison consistency over the 3 seasons, the same type of data is used.
