Can Draymond Green and Eric Paschall thrive together for the Warriors?
That's a question that was asked a lot this season, and the truth is that we still don't have a definitive answer.
Draymond is Golden State's starting power forward, which is the position Paschall prefers playing.
During a Zoom conversation Monday afternoon with NBC Sports Bay Area, the rookie discussed his on-court relationship with the 2017 NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
"He's been on the floor in the biggest games possible. Just learning from him," Paschall said. "Whenever me and him are on the floor, we talk a lot. We end up just having conversations. Say we do make a mistake, we'll just be like, 'This happened, this happened, so next time do this.'
"Me and his chemistry on the court is great. We talk about every possible situation offensively and defensively."
If Paschall cements himself as a player who needs to be on the floor 30 plus minutes a night, one workaround for Steve Kerr and the coaching staff is for Draymond to log more minutes at center.
And that is something the 2015-16 NBA Coach of the Year already is thinking about.
"I was always very careful over the last five, six years not to play him too many minutes at center," Kerr told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic a couple weeks ago. "But I think the league has changed pretty dramatically, and I can see him playing more minutes at the five.
"I don't think there would be any problem with that ... if Draymond is on the floor, he just guards anybody he wants because he's that good. If we decide to play him at the five and Eric at the four, we're gonna have a lot of shooting on the floor next to those guys -- and play-making -- and I think that's a combination that can work."
It just might need to work for the Warriors to be at their best moving forward.
