The Golden State Warriors have managed to capture two of the biggest free agents in the market within the past three offseasons, reeling in Kevin Durant in 2016 and DeMarcus Cousins earlier this month, now boasting an All-Star starting five from point guard to center.

In an interview with USA Today, Curry spoke about the significant roster changes in the West while adding, "it's interesting for (James) to make a move".

"There's a lot that's been made about the competition in the West and his eight straight Finals appearances and all that, but that just makes everybody raise the antenna up a little bit - including us", Curry told Amick.

There are going to be some fans who read or listen to these comments and fume about them, but Durant doesn't seem to mind at all. "So the West obviously got stronger with LeBron but you've still got to beat us".

To some National Basketball Association fans, Kevin Durant's decision to join the Golden State Warriors in 2016 is all that is wrong with the league.

But on Saturday the team bowed out as heroes, with fans in Moscow dancing on the streets and chanting "Russia" through the night. Saturday's thriller between hosts Russian Federation and 1998 bronze medalists Croatia was one of them.

"I don't think [adding Cousins] was on anybody's radar going into the summer", Curry said.

Curry also said he did see the DeMarcus Cousins signing coming until Warriors general manager Bob Myers called him hours after Curry's wife gave birth to their third child. "That would be awesome'".

Stephen Curry has been through the whole process, from struggling to pile up the wins to slowly transforming into a defensive team with outside shooting, ultimately morphing into the juggernaut the Warriors are today, boasting the most firepower in the league.

"So everybody says how we're ruining the National Basketball Association - I love that phrasing", told USA Today in an interview published on Wednesday.
