Paschall raves about Warriors rookie 'specimen' Wiseman


James Wiseman's rookie season with the Warriors hasn't been perfect, but the big man has done well to adapt quickly to the NBA game after just playing injust three college games and having a stunted training camp.

Eric Paschall, who has spent plenty of time playing alongside Wiseman in the Warriors' frontcourt, raved to 95.7 The Game on Thursday about what he has seen from the No. 2 overall pick.

"James Wiseman is a specimen," Paschall told "Damon, Ratto and Kolsky." "Greatest kid in the world, that's the one thing I love about him, is just like his ability to learn and be the greatest kid off the court, again it's real good to have him along, and fun playing with him."

After starting the first two games of the season, Paschall has been a vital piece of the Warriors' second unit with Draymond Green now back in the lineup.

Wiseman has started all eight of his appearances in his rookie season, averaging 11.3 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.

His ability to shoot from deep has surprised many outside of the organization, but those within the Warriors have heaped praise on the 19-year-old while stressing that there is significant room for improvement.

Paschall and Wiseman likely will be key cogs in the Warriors' rotation for years to come, and are a terrific young duo to soak up all the knowledge former NBA Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green has to offer.
