The Golden State Warriors got everybody talking when they managed to sign Kevin Durant this summer and put together one of the most star-studded lineups in the history of the game.
With that great signing comes great pressure. Can the Warriors better their record-setting 73 regular season wins from last season? Are they automatically going to win the Larry O'Brien trophy once again?
KD's motives about the move were clear: he wants to win. Anything but securing a championship during his time in Oakland - however long that may be - will be considered a bust.

Durantula did find some success with Team USA this summer as they won a gold medal in the basketball at the Rio Olympics.
He did so alongside now-teammates Draymond Green and Klay Thompson and many people have speculated if that is a precursor to how they might function at the Oracle Arena.
Thompson is already sick and tired of taking questions about the Warriors' new 'super team'.
“Yes. Yes,” Thompson replied when asked if he’s tired of answering questions about next season during an interview with GQ magazine. “I just want to go out there and prove to people how great we can be. Every day at the media session here I have to answer questions about it.
"‘Oh, how’s the chemistry between you three.’ Everyday… But it’s part of the territory. I just give some automated answers. I can be pretty robotic. There’s a lot of hype surrounding the franchise now, and deservedly so. It’s part of our job, we have to answer those questions.”
The Dubs are the bookies'' favourites to win it all next season, but only their actions on the court can answer the ongoing questions.
