An added bonus of the new NBA 2K13 video game seems to be getting in on some NBA swag secrets. 

The Oklahoma City Thunder may be rocking some drab alternates this season, if you believe some screen shots on the newest hit from 2K Sports. 

Steve Noah of Operation Sports (h/t Larry Brown Sports), spotted some interesting new uniforms worn by Thunder avatars during a recent session. 

Here is what he had for us in the form of two tweets. 

Here is Kevin Durant dressed in what looks to be a a Thunder uniform; whether that is official or not remains to be seen.

We can probably rest easy that the team will not be changing their name to the "Thudner" as is seen in the first picture. 

I am fairly confident that's a gaffe relegated to the video game. 

The team is yet to make an official statement that these are indeed something we will see in the next few months. 

That doesn't mean we can't hold a virtual finger out in their general direction and judge them accordingly. 

The good news is these are far better than the regular Rainbow Brite uniforms they are forced to wear most nights. 

Still, these go far too much the other way for my taste. The piping, number on the center of the jersey and colorway makes it all look like some generic uniform some random high school might use. 

This being one of the best teams in the NBA, and arguably the flashiest, we think they can do much better. 

Video games: fine waster of time and breaker of uniform secrets.
