Please tell me this isn’t the prototype

Kevin Durant, enhancedThe Oklahoman has been showing this presumed Photoshop job at; it’s credited simply as “AP Photo,” and I haven’t seen it floating around anywhere else, so I’m guessing that this was done in-house. Mostly, I’d like to know what Kevin Durant thinks of it.

And really, black and white? This will fit with the world’s preconceptions — we only just got television here a couple years ago, along with indoor plumbing — but it seems awfully drab. Now black and blue, that would be suitably menacing.

Addendum: Trini took one look at this and said “Too much lightning.” Then again, how do you convey a sound — especially that sound — in a picture?

    To me, the lettering looks “lifted,” but I can’t put my finger on where.

    Forgive me, but I could crap better Photoshop than that.

    I don’t doubt it, though I’d hate to see a trial of this premise.

    Meanwhile, I’ve come up with another team name along these lines: PERCUSSIONS. It fits Loud City just fine, although that’s not the reason I had in mind.
