D.R.A.M. arrives at the Warner Music Group's celebration for the 58th annual Grammy Awards at Milk Studios on Feb. 15, 2016 in Los Angeles.  

As the NBA season kicks off tonight (Oct. 25), basketball fans from across the music world sound off on whether, with the addition of superstar Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors are too big to fail -- or just primed to blow another 3-1 lead in the Finals.
D.R.A.M.: “I have to root for Golden State because their home theme song is ‘Cha Cha,' but I don’t think they will go 82-0.”
Marc E. Bassy: “This is a year of dub redemption, now with KD (Kevin Durant). I think the Golden State Warriors might have the best offensive in team history. The bay area is in for a couple of rings!”

Lil Dicky: "I think you're blind, deaf, and dumb if you don't think the Warriors could win it all.”

Alex Pall, The Chainsmokers: "It's more likely that we will wake up one day looking like Tom Brady than the Warriors going 82-0.”

Watsky: "The Warriors will go 82-0, sweep the playoffs, and build a new arena in San Francisco that floats into outer space like the Death Star."

Miles Morris, Bad Suns: "Man I hope not! I can't say they won't do it, but my bitterness towards Durant for leaving OKC still lingers."
Bryan “Birdman” Williams: “NO Way; Impossible…OKC has Westbrook.”

James TW: “The Warriors are looking pretty intimidating with KD in preseason but I don't think this team, even with so many star players, can go on an 82-0 run.”
Young the Giant’s Francis Comtois: “I doubt it. They saw what grinding through the regular season did to their game in the playoffs. I think they'll conserve their energy for the finals.”
Imad Royal: “Not a chance, I love KD but nah no way, haha. That being said they're not gonna lose much either.”

Rockie Fresh: “Even as a Bulls fan I'm picking the Warriors. The have 4 of the top 10 players in the league on one team. It's not fair. I think the Warriors will lose (exactly) 5 games.”
Shinedown’s Zach Meyers: “No, I think it's gonna take more than the pre season for that squad to figure it out. That's a lot of executive chefs in one kitchen. It's gonna take a minute for them to figure out the dynamic of the team.”
Jacquees: “No, because they’re going to lose to Cleveland in the playoffs… But I do like Curry & Durant!”
