Cramming for the season
The Thunder will play five pre-season games in a seven-day span starting next Wednesday, which is why Carlesimo and his staff are hoping to introduce a lot of the team's offense and defense this week.
"Normally you play a game or two and regroup,” Carlesimo said. "We basically have five games and one practice in Sacramento. We'll try to get a lot of stuff in and then clean it up on the fly.”
Fans can pre-order the Thunder's home white and road blue jerseys at nbathundershop.com or at the Thundershop located on the ground floor at Leadership Square in downtown Oklahoma City. The first 100 jersey orders receive a free Thunder T-shirt. Pre-ordered jerseys are not expected to be ready for pickup or delivery until at least December.
