WINNER – Golden State Warriors
This one pretty much goes without saying. The Warriors managed to land the best free agent not named LeBron James the league has ever seen, and did it after winning an NBA-record 73 games in the regular season last year. Even though the record-setters also made history with the biggest collapse in Finals history, adding Kevin Durant in the aftermath makes the loss significantly less painful.
If the core of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green doesn’t win at least two titles in the next four years, it’s safe to say this Warriors team will go down as a colossal disappointment.
