The NBA world was turned on its head on the Fourth of July.

Kevin Durant announced he was joining the Warriors, and NBA Twitter exploded. Reactions ran from fans ranged from anger to joy β€” depending on the fan base β€” but mostly there was shock. Golden State just assembled the best shooting team in NBA history (they arguably had that already) and the team with 73 wins last season looks like the team to beat for a title now.

NBA players had a lot of those same reactions on Twitter.
