Offensive Floor General Key For Warriors?
Earlier this year the Warriors’ ownership and front office changes ultimately brought about the inevitable, and the backcourt pairing of Ellis and Curry came to an end when Ellis was dealt to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Andrew Bogut. That move will likely make the Warriors the defensive team they have long wanted to be once Bogut gets healthy, but it also changed the game for Curry, who is now much more of a true floor leader for the team.
“Just puts the ball in my hands a little more to make plays,” Curry tells HOOPSWORLD. “Coach [Mark Jackson] has put a lot of confidence in me to go out there and do that, so that’s my goal is to make the right decisions, be aggressive and attack and play alongside Klay [Thompson] and Harrison [Barnes]. The backcourt that we have, we mesh well together, especially with Jarrett [Jack] coming off the bench, so it’s been a different look, but we are getting used to each other and we are playing well.”
