The NBA is filled with its fair share of superstars. After an offseason filled with free agency moves that likely made your head spin, new faces have found new homes, and many players sit in great spots looking toward the 2016 – 17 season. It will be hard for Russell Westbrook to improve on this past season, but now that Kevin Durant has officially left Oklahoma City, it’s all on Westbrook’s shoulders — and this is both a blessing and a curse. It’s Westbrook’s chance to shine, because all his moves will be magnified no matter if he epically fails at leading his team or steps up and slays the competition.
The rout was a coming out party for Kevin Durant at Oracle Arena, home of his new team the Golden State Warriors. Durant rocked the NBA with his decision to forsake the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Warriors as a free agent, and he received a rapturous welcome from his new home fans.
