When Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors this summer, most people expected the Dubs to breeze their way through the regular season.

After all, the Warriors won a record 73 games last term, so one would think adding the 2014 MVP into the mix would make them all the more powerful.

One game in, though, and Golden State have already suffered their first loss as the San Antonio Spurs blew right past them on their own court.

KD has taken that personally. The forward got some extra work in last night and ESPN were lucky enough to catch the former Oklahoma City Thunder man in action.

Interestingly though, Durant appeared to be yelling at himself while he was shooting, using all the critiscism he has recived since moving to the Bay Area as fuel to get better.

"They say I ain't hungry!" Durant exclaimed and "I'm out here!"

Shooting his last shots, Durant said, "They told me I ain't have no drive! I'm out here. They called me a coward! Putting in work."

When asked after his session about shouting criticisms, Durant explained, "That's what I say to myself when I'm working. I hear it all the time. You hear the noise. You hear what they say about you. Everybody hears it. So it's a little extra motivation when you hear it."

Of the scene, Durant said, "Nobody in this arena right now, and that's when you get better. Nobody sees you when you're doing this stuff right here, but luckily y'all was in here watching."
