Looking forward to seeing season tickets and partial season tickets prices. I think I can do it this year. Can't wait for our team to take the court again.

Doesn't look like there are any season tickets available but you can pay your way onto the waiting list http://www.nba.com/thunder/tickets/true_blue_club_1112.html

Here's another way, it's how I got mine. Two years ago I bought a 14 game Loud City package for the first part of the season, then I bought an eight game club level package for the second half.

They then called and presented me with a full season ticket package in the club level, which I bought into. It's a three year contract but that's good as far as i'm concerned.

I think I will start with a partial season package too and then see what happens. I am just in a hurry for them to set their prices on the partials and ready for the season to start.

At least this year basketball will start in October instead of December.

Is it true the Thunder organization are going to raise ticket prices next season?

Have not heard that but it would not surprise me. Last year, they raised some of the lower bowl tickets by $10 or so, depending on location.

Now each and every playoff game, the price per ticket goes up by about $5.00 per series game. I know my regular season ticket price in the club level was $78.00 per seat, but for the finals they were up to $146.50 each I believe.

They didn't raise prices for season ticket holders for the coming season. I don't know what they will do for single ticket sales, if there are any single tickets to sell.

I think they've already stated that there will not. I think they probably should. The market is there...

Single tickets go on sale October 2nd the same day NBA 2k13 is released. (Kevin Durant is on the cover). Season tickets are not available anymore so only single tickets or group tickets for certain games are available.

I must say that watching OU football this weekend made me feel as if basketball season can't come soon enough.

How about this - Thunder the # 6 rated professional sports franchise - U.S.

http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/teamrankings#table

Stadium experience is where we were rated low, which shouldn't be, after the renovations last year.....the insides of our building is really good.

You'd be very lucky to get any kind of ticket. The season ticket holders have first choice of the remaining single game tickets on September 27th, then on October 2 the general public is offered if any are left.

There is a waiting list to buy season tickets, one of only 4 teams in the NBA to have a 'waiting' list.......

The do reserve 200 game day tickets in Loud City for each regular season game so there is a chance to go at regular price.

A local photojournalist named Garett Fisbeck has started a nice (photo) blog.

The latest entry is Thunder Media Day, with some good shots from that. For example:

There's also some great boxing and high school football photos as well.

Looks like an interesting blog to keep a watch on.

Watched the game against the Rockets the other night. Westbrook was great. Did not see the Utah game last night but with Westbrook sitting, we were down by almost 20 by halftime against a Middle-of-the-pack team. Just goes to show you how valuable Westbrook is to this team. Guest this could be a message to all the critics and naysayers.

I see the preseason game against PHX is a sellout at the BOK in Tulsa. It will be the highest attended event at that venue for any event, 18,233.

I can't believe OKC sold out a preseason game against the Bobcats. That is literally the worst possible home game... still sold out. The Thunder brand has grownn so much. I remember going to decent games the first and second seasons where there were a couple thousand empty seats (depite what official attendance might say)... not any more.

Ibaka looked great tonight! He really showed the full offensive arsenal - 18 ft jumper, aggressive drives, ran the floor, and hit a corner 3. Harden had a rough shooting night, but he hasn't played much either. He did have 7 boards, 7 assists, and got to the line. Good players still effect the game even on bad shooting nights. Thabeet showed a pulse, which is, well, something. Can't wait for the game in Wichita tomorrow!!!

James Harden turned down a 4 year 52 million deal, he wants the max contract worth 60 million over 4 years, he is not worth the max, they should let Harden go

Hawk405359

If he can get a max contract and a starting roster spot, then he should go for it by all means. I think this is just testing the water to see if there's a team willing to pay him a lot more than he can get in OKC when he enters free-agency.
