The Golden State Warriors are going with a different approach during the upcoming 2023-24 NBA season, with the storied franchise bringing in another star player for the first time since signing Kevin Durant a few years back.
As a result of the Warriors trading guard Jordan Poole to the Washington Wizards over the summer, the team acquired 12-time NBA All-Star point guard Chris Paul, which was a strange move due to the history between the player and the star players in San Francisco.
Along with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green squashing their beef with Paul, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is also starting to like the veteran guard being with the team, as he’s fond of the old-school vibe the 38-year-old brings to the team, via Warriors on NBCS.

Along with liking the vocal aspect that Paul brings to the table, Kerr is fond of the competitiveness of the veteran point guard and is looking forward to the edge he’ll give this team during the upcoming season.
The big question mark that comes with Paul is the pace of play and whether the 38-year-old can keep up with Curry and company because the Warriors have a distinct style of play.
If Paul can’t keep up or fit in, concerns will certainly follow throughout the season.
However, Paul has been successful wherever he’s played in the NBA, even when he’s landed in less desirable places like with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Paul will likely work out for the Warriors and become a valuable asset for Golden State, but the real question will be whether this team has what it takes to compete against the best of the best in the Western Conference.
