The Oklahoma City Thunder opened training camp on Tuesday, Sept. 30 with a team loaded with veteran talent and potential young contributors.

With several veterans such as Thabo Sefolosha, Derek Fisher and Caron Butler gone, OKC will be relying on many younger players, such as Steven Adams, Andre Roberson, Perry Jones, and Jeremy Lamb.

It's also putting more of a leadership burden on Thunder stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who so far in preseason and on the first day of training camp are showing they are ready to become more vocal leaders.

In this video you'll hear comments from head coach Scott Brooks and veteran Thunder forward Nick Collison after the first day of training camp.
