Well, tonight's the night, folks: the Golden State Warriors will finally be able to play a game that counts with Kevin Durant on their team.

I've said that I probably won't believe he's on the team until he plays the first regular season game...and here we are at the first regular season game and I'm eagerly anticipating the confirmation that this is, in fact, reality (the way my dreams work, I could very well wake up from this extended fantasy right as the ref is throwing up the ball at tipoff).

Anyway, there's not a whole lot to see until we see what this team does together and how an opponent counters it. Right now, I mostly just want to take in the moment and get ready to move beyond the fact of this being surreal toward a place of acceptance.

You all know what to do: this is your GameThread.
