With the NBA season suspended indefinitely because of the coronavirus, the Warriors might not play again this season.
If that ends up being the case, they will finish with the worst record in the league at 15-50.
The team dealt with a ridiculous amount of injuries and also traded away D'Angelo Russell before the Feb. 6 deadline.
So were there any positives at all?
"Our young guys got really valuable playing time. That was important," coach Steve Kerr said Wednesday on "The TK Show" podcast with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic. "Eric Paschall looks like a guy -- because of his physical strength, his power, his confidence obviously -- we could throw into a playoff game right now and he would hold his own.
"That's one of the ways that we kind of look at players and look at the league. When you watch the two best teams in the league play in a regular season game or when you watch any playoff game -- can this player on our roster be out there? The answer with Eric for sure is a resounding yes. And that's exciting.
"To be able to get a guy like that in the second round -- and watch him grow and develop -- that alone makes this a successful season."
Wow. That truly is incredibly high praise.
Paschall got his rookie campaign off to a strong start, averaging 17.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists over the Warriors' first 24 games, while shooting nearly 51 percent from the field.
He then somewhat hit a wall from mid-December to mid-February, but came on very strong after the All-Star break.
The 23-year-old averaged 17.5 points and 4.1 rebounds over his last 10 games, and shot 56.5 percent overall.
Imagine how much space Eric Paschall is gonna have to attack the basket next season when Steph AND Klay are out there (watch how Lowry doesn’t try to stop Paschall because he’s worried about staying attached to Steph) pic.twitter.com/2cXEV8LqpM— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) March 6, 2020
Eric Paschall is a beast. It’s silly pic.twitter.com/UNq0MZmY27— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) March 8, 2020
People don’t think Eric Paschall is very athletic because he’s a two-foot jumper and doesn’t get highlight reel dunks in transition. Dude is a beast pic.twitter.com/n0qEoMomuA— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) January 17, 2020
Eric Paschall has 15 points (6-for-9 FG) and 5 assists in 20 minutes, and is a team-best +12 with the Warriors trailing by one after three quarters. He was the 41st overall pick. He’s a stud pic.twitter.com/KfL45g9GsC— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) March 6, 2020
I can watch clips of Eric Paschall dunking off two feet all day long. It’s just silly pic.twitter.com/oN7AWbB1qa— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) March 4, 2020
But perhaps most impressively -- Paschall averaged 4.2 assists during that span, and 6.4 assists his last five games.
This is a reallllllllllllly nice pass from Eric Paschall to Alec Burks for 3 pic.twitter.com/2sdfzp4SCb— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) January 9, 2020

The main thing for Paschall to work on during the offseason is finding consistency from beyond the arc, as the rookie is at 28.7 percent from deep.
"Now, he's got a lot to improve upon," Kerr told Kawakami. "He can work hard on his 3-point shot -- he's talked about that this year. But he's got the modern profile -- big strong kid, can guard multiple positions, nobody is gonna overwhelm him on the post or on the perimeter."
This is the perfect time to remind you that Paschall is a member of the Warriors because Golden State acquired the No. 41 overall pick on the morning of the draft in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks.
Note to general manager Bob Myers -- well done.
