The Golden State Warriors had their first preseason match last night as they faced off against the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Arena.
Of course, this was the first chance to see Kevin Durant take to the court in a Dubs jersey, and also the first chance to see him link up with Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Stephen Curry.
Durant was roundly booed by the partisan Raptors crowd for no other reason that joining the Warriors, really.

To the reigning MVP, Curry, that did not make a whole lot of sense at all.
"It's just funny, buying into a narrative that doesn't make sense," Curry told reporters following the game.
While it clearly bothered the point guard, the man in question appeared perfectly relaxed about the boo-boys.
"They cheer, they boo, it's all good," Durant told reporters.
While Durant claims the hostility didn't bother him, the 2014 MVP struggled in his Warriors debut, finishing with nine points on just 2-of-9 shooting as part of a rare Dubs loss.
The Warriors return home for their second preseason game and host the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night. KD can count on a much friendlier environment on that occasion.
