The preseason schedule for the Oklahoma City Thunder has officially been released this weekend as we edge closer to what could be a defining season in the (short) history of this franchise. Current stars Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Serge Ibaka will have had about two months to recover from the longest season in their entire lives, as hooping in summer league games, a jam-packed 66-game schedule, a full post-season and the 2012 Olympics will give the "Big 4" plenty of reason to rest before October comes around.
The official preseason schedule is yours after the jump.
