As Curry grew into a superstar step by step, the Warriors, who had been neglected, also gained the support of countless fans. However, time waits for no man. Curry, Thompson and Green are all over 30 years old. They have reached the end of their peak period. The Warriors stand at the crossroads and face the choice. Should they trust young players to start rebuilding or continue to pursue good results with this lineup? This summer, they traded Poole, got Paul and renewed their contract with Green. From these two points, we already know the attitude of the Warriors. They think that veterans can help improve their strength, and the goal of the new season is still the championship.
The head coach of the Warriors participated in the recording of a talk show, and he talked about why he chose Paul. Cole said that the Warriors made the second most mistakes last season, so they needed Paul’s ability to control the court. At the age of 38, Paul is an important role player at best. As a result, we can feel Paul’s importance through Cole’s expression, and the Warriors will entrust him with a heavy responsibility. The Warriors’ backcourt combination is Thompson and Curry. If Paul will play an important role, who will he replace? The Warriors’ core lineup does not have Paul’s position, because his height and age are a big problem, and it will take a lot of risks to let him debut.
Cole spoke highly of Paul. He said that Paul has the ability to control the game at the critical moment. He has played against Paul countless times, so he knows how good this player is. Cole also said that it is a lucky thing to get Paul, and I am looking forward to next season. I believe the ending will develop in the direction that fans expect. Cole believes that Paul is one of the best point guards in the history of basketball, and the Warriors’ offense will be more balanced. Paul’s pick-and-roll and mid-range ability can make the offense more threatening. The Warriors need Paul to solve the problem of mistakes in the team, and the reason for many mistakes is the way of playing. Their tactical system, which focuses on passing and quickly transferring the ball, is prone to mistakes, and Paul will also control the ball.
Cousins, a former Warriors player, also expressed his views. He said that he did not understand why the Warriors chose to give up Poole. At this stage, Paul could not improve the strength of the Warriors. At present, the Warriors are short of major generals in the inside, and there are no talented players with strong physical fitness in the lineup. Once Rooney and Green are unable to play due to injuries, then their inside is really unavailable. The Warriors are going in the wrong direction. Now this lineup is not as competitive as last season. It can be said that the shortcomings are more obvious. Although I don’t want to admit it, the Warriors are getting farther and farther away from the championship, and their era is coming to an end.
