By signing with the Warriors yesterday, Kevin Durant changed the game. He took the Warriors from a 73 win great team to a team that no team may be equipped to stop. I mean, that team was already great offensively and they added a guy who can have a game like this on any given night.

Good lord, that team is going to be great. For some really great reads on the situation, I'd recommend Zach Lowe's piece at ESPN, Lee Jenkins' at Sports Illustrated and Tom Ziller's at SB Nation.

LeBron, by the way, reacted by posting a photo of him and his family watching 'The Godfather'. And we all know how that movie ends. If 2016-17 is the season of the 'Super Death Lineup' Warriors, it's also the season of petty, slighted LeBron James and en fuego Russell Westbrook. I'm all in on all three fronts.

In Cavs news, Chris Haynes of reported that Cleveland won't match Matthew Dellavedova's offer sheet with the Milwaukee Bucks. Get your Kay Felder jersey's ordered now before they sell out, ya'll.

Oh, and Cavs fans are tracking a plane again. Dwyane Wade may or may not be in Cleveland somewhere meeting with the Cavs, which caused CBS' Zach Harper to make this mesmerizing GIF. Just a typical Tuesday for Cavs fans, no biggie and not weird at all.

That's it for today. We'll talk to you tomorrow.
