Kevin Durant's move to the Golden State Warriors blew just about everyone's minds when he finally announced his decision in free agency earlier this summer.

However, now the world has had a little time to process the information, and KD has been away winning a gold medal with Team USA in Rio, the news isn't quite so startling.

Still, the sight of four bona fide All-Stars suiting up on the same team - Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Durant - is quite the sight to behold.

The Dubs had their first preseason game last night as they took on the Toronto Raptors in Canada.

And, expectedly, Durant recorded his first points in Warriors colours during the affair.

The former Oklahoma City Thunder forward raced clear and hammered home a runaway dunk to record his first ever two points, but the rest of the night wouldn't be so easy for him or his new team.

KD finished with nine points on 2-of-9 shooting in 19 minutes as the Warriors fell to the Raptors 97-93. Thompson had a team-high 16 points, and Curry added eight points.

There was clearly some rust in the NBA finalists and they are certainly working out how the team dynamics will work with KD now in the picture.

Regardless of those facts, it was still pretty cool to see Durantula get off the mark - if you are a Warriors fan, anyway.
