Stephen Curry insists Kevin Durant will adjust to the Golden State Warriors in no time at all

The Golden State Warriors are the envy of virtually the whole NBA after acquiring 2014 MVP Kevin Durant during free agency.

The 27-year-old joins current Team USA teammates Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green in the Bay Area, as well as reigning back-to-back and first ever unanimous MVP, Stephen Curry.

While the Dubs are now stacked with more talent than ever before, questions have arisen as to whether Durant will be able to fit into the Warriors highly successful system after being the go-to man in Oklahoma.

Speaking to ESPN's Hannah Storm, Curry didn't anticipate any problems with the Warriors' newest recruit.

"We got a lot of IQ on our team and I know we have a lot of unselfish guys that will figure it out," Curry said. "We might have to change up the roles a little bit, but for the most part, when we have fun doing what we do and relying on each other and playing together, I think that's when the beautiful basketball happens. So we'll be able to hopefully transition to that very quickly."

One of the reasons why the Warriors were able to amass a record-setting 73 wins last season was because of their deeply talented roster.

In order to secure KD and be able to afford him, Golden State have had to dismantle part of Steve Kerr's core. That's not a problem to Curry, because he thinks they will be an entirely different animal with Durant.

"I know for a fact that it's going to be a different look. We have obviously lost some key guys: Harrison Barnes, [Andrew] Bogut, Mo Speights, Leandro Barbosa, guys that meant a lot to us and our success. So we gave up a lot to gain KD, but we're going to be a different team.

"At the end of the day, there's nothing guaranteed in this league. I know we want to avoid that kind of situation. We have to go out and play and it's gonna be a tough task."

With four current All-Stars in their starting five, the Warriors have an immensely powerful lineup. Having retained Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, it appears as though their pine will still be lined with sufficient talent to challenge again next year.
