Kevin Durant had an interesting way of motivating himself during a shooting drill on Thursday.

The Warriors got throttled by the Spurs in their season opener on Tuesday night and Kevin Durant is putting in extra work to try and erase those memories. Not only is he putting in time after practice, but he is also shouting out the haters while doing so.

ESPN's Ethan Sherwood Strauss was in New Orleans for the Warriors practice on Thursday ahead of their matchup against the Pelicans on Friday. Check out Durant yelling at himself during a shooting drill:

As you can see, Durant attempts to motivate himself through the drill:

"They told me I ain't have no drive! I'm out here. They called me a coward. Putting in work."

Expect to see a highly motivated Durant on Friday night as the Warriors play visitor to the Pelicans. You can watch the game on ESPN at 9:30 p.m. EST.
