With Kevin Durant gone and Klay Thompson expected to miss the majority of the 2019-20 season recovering from his left ACL tear, the offensive burden is going to be very heavy for Stephen Curry and Draymond Green. D’Angelo Russell is going to help as well, but Golden State is going to go as far as Curry and Green can take them in 2019-20.
Some believe Curry can win his third MVP award next season. His usage rate is going to be off the charts. We saw in the 2019 NBA Finals Curry is more than capable of scoring 40 points with ease with Durant and Thompson not by his side.
Load management worked wonders for Kawhi Leonard this past season. The superstar was fresh for the postseason and able to lead the Toronto Raptors to their first-ever championship against the Warriors in six games. Curry does have a history of ankle issues. The Warriors will always play it safe with Steph if he’s got soreness in his ankles. Otherwise, expect the sharpshooter to try and play in all 82 games.
The same goes for Green. If he’s hurt, Golden State will sit him. If not, the All-Star power forward is going to go out there and compete every night.
