Playing in front of his new home fans for the first time, Kevin Durant received a hero’s welcome. 

Playing for Team USA in an Olympic tune-up against China, Durant was welcomed at Oracle Arena—the Warriors’ regular-season home—with a standing ovation. There were already plenty of Durant jerseys in the crowd, as well as the normal mix of other Warriors stars.
