The menacing duo of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant posed for pictures at the Warriors media day on Monday.
If the rest of the NBA wasn’t on watch already, they are now after seeing Kevin Durant and Steph Curry together at the Warriors media day. (WARNING: Image may be NSFW for Oklahoma City Thunder fans):
I’ve never seen a picture of two basketball players together that was genuinely scary, until now. On the Fourth of July this year, Durant announced that he would be signing with the Golden State Warriors. It didn’t feel real, and it still doesn’t, but after seeing some pictures from media day, it’s beginning to sink in.
Neither Durant nor Curry have averaged less than 22 points in a single season over the past four campaigns. Expect much of the same for a fifth year. Joining Durant and Curry will be Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala — just to name a few.

It’s also sinking in that the Warriors might be better than what they showed during their 73-win campaign last season. Is it really out of this world to think that with Durant they could push 75 wins? Some might say they have some big shoes to fill:
(Thanks for continuing to read despite that low-effort joke.)
Then again, for the Warriors, does the hype matter if things don’t pan out in the NBA Finals yet again? Durant has all but accepted his role as a villain now that he’s joined forces to create what most would call a “super team” with the Warriors. He seems resigned to that fact that his image will never be the same to most NBA fans.
Take one look at the picture of Curry and Durant from media day and try your best to imagine a competitive NBA season. It’s hard to do. One thing’s for sure: even if we don’t see a competitive balance amongst teams, the Warriors will do their best to make up for the lack of excitement.
