With Kevin Durant gone and Klay Thompson injured, Jalen Rose expects Draymond Green and Stephen Curry to step up for the Golden State Warriors.

The former NBA player and current ESPN sports analyst thinks Green and Curry won’t have a problem leading the new-look Dubs. In fact, he expects Dray to have an All-NBA worthy season and Steph to rise to the ranks once again and re-insert his name in the MVP conversation.

Rose said he expects Green to lead the Warriors in rebounds, assists and become the third-leading scorer on the team. He also pointed out that the two-time All-Star has the potential to become a Defensive Player of the Year candidate.

On the other hand, Jalen sees Curry hitting his peak form and registering a 50-40-90 offensive efficiency mark.

Moreover, Rose emphasized that people should not sleep on D’Angelo Russell, as the 24-year-old guard will be out there to prove that his All-Star selection last season was no fluke.

It is unclear how good the Warriors will be next season, but head coach Steve Kerr remains excited about the potential of his team. Although they are no longer the clear-cut favorites to win the NBA title, Golden State can still do damage in the playoffs.
