"I don't need [to be recruited], I don't need to feel appreciated", Durant told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday after a 108-100 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on opening night. After the Celtics defeated the 76ers, we got to see the Warriors in their first step of a quest toward winning a fourth National Basketball Association title in five seasons.

The Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers in 4 matches last season to claim the 6th title in their history.

The two-time defending champions picked up right where they left off offensively in the first half of the season opener. That will come with more possessions as we get through the season. The unveiling of another championship banner was the grand finale before the regular-season opener, but that wasn't the most incredible part of the night.

Oklahoma City All-Star forward Paul George dealt with a similar situation a year ago when he was constantly bombarded with questions about his pending free agency.

Going into the 2017 season, people were raving about the new look Warriors bench, with Omri Casspi and Nick Young being the prized additions.

Throughout the summer, it was rumored that this could very well be Durant's final year with the Warriors. While Thompson has said, in no uncertain terms, that he wants to remain with the Warriors, Durant has been far more cagey in his thoughts on the future. The Warriors will move to a new arena in San Francisco next season. Over the final two months of the season, he saw heavy minutes and averaged at least 13.2 points in both March and April.

Much to the surprise of nearly everybody, Patrick McCaw, a key rotation piece (when healthy), has rebuffed the Warriors in their attempts to resign him. Pundits will see the benefit in being able to plausibly claim the Warriors will lose to the Rockets or Lakers or Celtics or Raptors, then the Warriors will just go ahead and win the title anyway.
