We have one week until the Thunder open up their regular season campaign against the New York Knicks, so why not take a quick look back at the last few weeks?

10. Melo’s Thunder debut

Carmelo Anthony introduced himself to Thunder fans with a red hot first quarter in the preseason opener against the Houston Rockets. He scored the team’s first 10 points.

9. Josh Huestis’s game winning blocks

Huestis earned himself a roster spot over the last few weeks. Sealing a win over Melbourne helped his case.

8. Don’t forget about Jerami Grant

Overshadowed by all of the offseason headlines, Grant provides some great value coming off of the bench for Billy Donovan. He showcased his athletic ability with this put back, which was unfortunately after the buzzer.

7. Hoodie Melo

I’m thrilled that the Thunder are fortunate enough to participate in this phenomenon and you should be too.

6. Russ and Melo going viral

Everything about this was great.

5. Terrance Ferguson

The rookie played solid minutes this preseason and showed that he’ll be able to contribute immediately off the bench. There’s a lot to be excited for here. Ferguson has tremendous upside, and his athletic ability is on display below.

4. Regular season Russ showing up in Denver

3. This:

2. Having these three on the same team

1. And finally, a little loyalty.

One more week.
