One thing Warriors' Eric Paschall wants to work on most before season

One thing Warriors' Eric Paschall wants to work on most before season

Warriors rookie Eric Paschall is a solid 3-point shooter.

The No. 41 overall pick in last week's NBA draft shot 34.8 percent from beyond the arc (70-for-201) during his senior season at Villanova.

But when it comes to the one thing in particular he wants to work on the most before the season begins in October?

"Definitely just adjusting to the [3-point] line," he said Monday afternoon on 95.7 The Game. "I feel like college kids now have an advantage because they already moved the line back, so they're pretty much shooting an NBA 3.

"I have a little more distance to get used to but definitely just that aspect -- getting used to the line."

For many years, the college 3-point line was 19 feet, 9 inches. The NCAA moved it back to 20 feet, 9 inches prior to the 2008-09 campaign. Starting next season, the line will be the same as it is in international basketball -- 22 feet, 1 3/4 inches.

The NBA distance is 22 feet in the corners and 23 feet, 9 inches everywhere else. So, it is definitely understandable to hear Paschall say he's focused on making that adjustment.

After all, the Warriors need all the shooting they can get and will be counting on the 22-year-old to space the floor.

Warriors vs. Lakers live stream: How to watch NBA preseason game

It seems like we’ve been here before.

The Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers will match up for the third time this preseason Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

The two clubs played just two days ago at Staples Center, with the Lakers coming out on top with a 104-98 win.

Steph Curry will not play in the penultimate preseason game for Golden State, and forward Omari Spellman also will sit after a tweaked back suffered in Monday night’s loss.

Anthony Davis, who missed Monday’s game, is expected to suit up for Los Angeles.

Steve Kerr jokes with Klay Thompson about redshirt year with Warriors

Steve Kerr jokes with Klay Thompson about redshirt year with Warriors

Now this is the kind of content you are here for.

Steve Kerr spoke to reporters after shootaround Wednesday morning. And as he saw guard Klay Thompson walking nearby, the Warriors coach busted out the jokes.

"Klay, we don't really need at all," Kerr said.

After Thompson responded with "redshirt season," Kerr seized the opportunity to roast the two-time All-NBA selection.

"We're redshirting him, trying to get him bigger and stronger. Get him used to campus life. Academically, he's got a ways to go ..."

Klay is rehabbing his torn left ACL, and will be sidelined until at least the All-Star break.

It's possible that the five-time All-Star misses the whole season, hence the "redshirt" reference.

But the Warriors sure hope that doesn't become the reality and Klay is able to come back at the end of the regular season for a playoff push.
