In that immediate area there are several parking lots and even a parking garage or two normally used for offices and businesses. I imagine some of the poorer quality lots will be refurbished, and I imagine there will be some additional signs to make the experience as user/audience friendly as possible.
Yes, you will have to walk. Get there early, you have to walk less.
Currently, a the largest croud that ever goes to a Thunder game is around 6,000. Assuming most people are at least 2-to-a-car, I imagine the official arena parking lot would cover a majority of that.
Figuring the newness and location of the arena will attract as many as 10,000 people to Thunder games, it will become a little more congested, but certainly livable. I'd guess, however, that season ticket holders might get some preferential treatment when it comes to parking.
