Ever since Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors, the franchise and their players have insisted that it is nobody's team - all of their superstar names are equal and they will all have their chance to shine.

During his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder, there was a tussle between KD and Russell Westbrook over who was the alpha male while Stephen Curry was the undoubted king of the Oracle Arena as the Warriors reached the finals for the second successive year.

One of the biggest struggles the franchise will face next season is their harmony on the court, but Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson have insisted they are all about winning titles, not being a big name. When it comes down to the clutch, they will have four players who can step up and make the necessary impact.

However, Under Armour's, who are in contract with Curry and tried to sign Durant before he joined Nike, CEO believes that the Warriors are still Steph's team and thinks KD knew that when he agreed to leave Oklahoma.

"KD is a good human being. They'll be good teammates. They're both competitors," he said. "KD made a decisive choice to go to Golden State. So going to Golden State and saying, 'Great, now give me the keys,' that's Stephen Curry's team.

"KD knew that when he went there, and I think that's something that will continue to work itself out."

It's going to be interesting to watch the whole relationship unfold.
