The Oklahoma Storm was a United States Basketball League team located in Enid, Oklahoma. Founded by sports agent and attorney James Sears Bryant, the Storm successfully captured the USBL championship under head coach Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 2002, defeating Kansas with a final score of 122-109.[1] The team played its home games at Mark Price Arena and the Chisholm Trail Expo Center. The Oklahoma Storm disbanded following the 2007 season when the USBL dissolved.[2]

Several Storm players, including Willie Burton, LaBradford Smith, Richard Dumas, Gaylon Nickerson, Brent Price, James Lang, Chris Porter, Reggie Slater, Ira Newble, Bubba Wells, Kelly McCarty, and Jamario Moon, played for the NBA, either prior to or after playing for the Storm.
