"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.

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.
