Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is keeping fans on their toes as he remains hesitant to reveal his potential starting five for the upcoming season. The recent addition of Chris Paul to the team has thrown a curveball into the equation, complicating the decision-making process.
Last season, the Warriors’ starting lineup consisting of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, and Kevon Looney boasted an impressive net rating of 21.9. The success of this opening unit makes it difficult for Kerr to overlook their numbers.
However, with the arrival of Chris Paul, whose hall-of-fame resume speaks for itself, Kerr knows he needs to explore different combinations during training camp. He wants to ensure that all players get significant minutes and that he makes the best decision for the team moving forward.
Kerr’s recent comments suggest that he is considering various options, but it’s likely that Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, and Green are locked in their positions. There is a good chance that Kevon Looney will be the fifth starter, unless there are major surprises during training camp.
Although starting Paul occasionally is a possibility, the idea of having a lineup with three guards and a 6’6″ center for a full season is not sustainable. Kerr recognizes this and will prioritize a more balanced approach.
It seems that while Kerr may have a good idea of his starting five, he is focused on addressing other pressing needs at the moment. This pushes the decision-making process further into the future, leaving fans eager to know who will take the court as the Warriors’ starting five next season.
As the anticipation builds, Forever Sports Online will keep readers updated on Kerr’s decisions and any major surprises that may arise during training camp. Stay tuned for more news on the Golden State Warriors’ starting lineup for the upcoming season.
