Kevin Durant is just weeks away from making his competitive Golden State Warriors debut, and the hype around his arrival has barely died down.

The small forward has formed a 'super team' with fellow All-Stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

However, that doesn't mean he will be taking a backseat anytime soon or sharing the proverbial spotlight.

After getting out of the blocks during the Warriors' training camp, Green accused KD of "not being aggressive enough" during practice.

The power forward was referring to the 2014 MVP's shooting, but KD insists that's exactly why the Dubs moved heaven and earth to sign him.

"That's why they wanted me here! They want me to come out here and be myself. I'm not going to play timid or not step on anyone's toes, but I'm still going to be myself," Durant said. "Nobody's telling me I'm shooting too much. They want me to be myself out there.

"My thing is, impose my will by scoring when we need it," he said. "I could do the other things, but I'm highlighted by my scoring and how efficient I can put the ball in the basket and try to search out good shots for our group."
