Ron Adams assesses Golden State’s new additions
It was a bitter end to the season for the Golden State Warriors last year, which pretty much marked the end of the Dubs dynasty that had terrorized the league over the past five years.
Nonetheless, there is a lot of optimism within the organization as they enter the new campaign with a revamped side. For Warriors assistant coach Ron Adams, he believes that the team’s offseason additions will definitely have a positive impact for Golden State for the upcoming season.
“I’ve spent some time with D’Angelo and I find him to be a really charming guy,” Adams said of new recruit D’Angelo Russell, via Monte Poole of NBC Sports. “Intuitively, I really like him as a person. He’s still young, still growing, but I like what I see. He’s going to help us.”
The Warriors also added a bunch of young guns through the draft in Jordan Poole, Eric Paschall, and Allen Smailagic — all of whom appear to have a lot of promise in the eyes of Adams.
“I like all of them,” he said. “We have a really good crop of gym rats. I don’t think there’s any question Jordan is a pro shooter. He has quick release, can handle and has defensive potential.
“Eric has a chance to contribute this year. He needs to keep working on his shot, but he’s got a good vibe. Alen is very dedicated and wants to be good, but he’s pretty green.”
“This experiment is going to be really interesting,” Adams said. “He’s got length and he’s a good athlete. He’s got some developing to do, and I think he knows that.”
The Dubs are definitely not going to be the dominating team we’ve all gotten so used to this coming year, but there’s still a lot to look forward to for the Warriors faithful nonetheless.
