Draymond Green, a four-time NBA champion, is eager to join Chris Paul on the Golden State Warriors for the upcoming campaign.
On the “Podcast P With Paul George” podcast, Green stated that Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George will make the Warriors’ offense more dynamic.
Green stated, “I think he brings a couple things. “First off, I believed that last year we ran out of variety. Steph also said this in his press conference. In a team, you need variety, and that’s what I mean by that. Last year, our squad lacked a variety of scoring options, and I believe CP has added something new to the menu to remedy the issue.
Paul, who averaged 13.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 8.9 assists while shooting 44.0% from the field, 37.5% from outside the arc, and 83.1% from the free-throw line for the Phoenix Suns previous season, was acquired by the Warriors by trading Jordan Poole to the Washington Wizards. His age is 38.
Paul, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Green are anticipated to start for Golden State in 2023–24.
“I also believe that Steph and I fought a lot last year. And when Steph and I come together, we’re dangerous,” added Green. “Our second unit couldn’t figure it out, so our minutes got split up a lot. I was then added to the second unit to help things get back on track. That translates to about 15 less minutes spent together per game. Now that CP can anchor that unit, I believe that will significantly aid in reactivating our team.
Paul playing for the Warriors will be unexpected. Social media users went crazy over Paul’s phony laugh towards Warriors head coach Steve Kerr in 2018. The last time Curry said “This ain’t 2014 no more” to Paul was during a game against the Suns in the previous campaign.
Curry told Anthony Slater of The Athletic believes Paul can help the Warriors return to the promised land next season despite the fact that they have a long history together. In the Curry-Thompson-Green era, Golden State has participated in six NBA Finals and won four rings.
