Plenty of work awaits upon Pachulia’s return as the Warriors are less than a week away from when training camp opens on Friday. But while Pachulia’s offseason left him relaxed, the Warriors’ ability to keep their core roster this summer left him encouraged that the good times will continue. “I think we’re going to be even better this year with the confidence, the trust factor and knowing for ourselves we won a championship with that team, with that personalities on the team and the chemistry we have,” Pachulia said. “We can be even better with the focus we have with better details in how to improve.”
Adams doesn’t seem bothered by the expectations of being a $100 million dollar man in the middle of the Thunder’s starting lineup, but Year 5 for him in Oklahoma City will have a different feel. “There’s much bigger things we have to do and worry about other than ‘oh I’m getting paid this much, I have to shoot this much,’ or whatever it is,” Adams said when asked if his increased salary factors into his personal expectations. “Everyone’s goal is the main goal. You have to make any sort of sacrifice, anything you have to do for the team. “I might be wrong, mate, but that’s pretty much my mindset.”
Nothing else could come close to slowing Doncic. He averaged 14.8 points, 8.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists for Slovenia, showing off the kind of all-around skill level and athleticism that’s made him a surefire top-five pick in what is looking like a loaded 2018 NBA draft class. “He’s mature beyond his years, and has great court vision and basketball IQ,” the executive said. “He’s a natural leader, and capable of impacting the game without scoring, but can take over. He won’t dominate, but his teams will win games with his fingerprints all over the game.”
