A superteam. A juggernaut. A wrecking ball - all suitable ways to describe the new roster that has been assembled by the Golden State.
Their acquisition of Kevin Durant has formed what many are calling the strongest team in history. He joins the two-time Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry along with All-Stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green to form a 'big four'.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver yesterday criticised the move, stating it was bad for the league to have two superteams - the Cleveland Cavaliers are the dominant force in the east - but Durant himself doesn't agree with the assertion that the new Warriors are the best 'on paper' team ever seen.

In an interview with Sina, the 2014 MVP said: "I wouldn't say we're the best on-paper team in NBA history. This is not the first time good players have been on the same team.
"But with the hype around the NBA right now and the way social media is, everybody is saying that. But so many teams had great players. Not just us."
Of course, there have been fantastic teams in the past. LeBron James' Miami Heat were an incredibly talented 'big three', the Boston Celtics enjoy success with their own version, the Chicago Bulls were a dominant dynasty with Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan, and more great players while the Lakers had the dynamic duo of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal.
However, this is the first time four truly elite players have come together in their primes. The quartet has a combined total of 13 All-Star appearances and an incredible list of honours.
The trio of Curry, Thompson and Durant combined for a total of 964 regular season three-pointers during 2015/16 - more than 25 other franchises. Add Green to the equation, alongside role players like Andre Iguodala and David West, you no longer have the Splash Brothers, but the Splash Family.
