Eric Paschall from Warriors opens his NBA “Welcome Moment” against LeBron James
Golden State Warriors rookie striker Eric Paschall shared details of the first time he had to guard LeBron James.
That was his welcome to the league when the Warriors faced the Los Angeles Lakers in their first pre-season game.
“My welcome to the NBA moment was definitely in my first pre-season game,” said Paschall in Howard Beck’s “The Full 48” podcast. “I didn’t expect to be the first person on the bench. So coach Kerr says,” Eric! “He laughs in my face and just says,” You have AD. “
“So I have to protect AD, I have to protect LeBron.”
The Lakers defeated the Warriors, 123-101, to open the Chase Center. When it comes to Lebron, the Dubs rookie striker has found his superior strength.
“LeBron bullied me for the first time. I thought I was a strong guy until I met him, so it was kind of crazy. But the next time I hit him, just so he wouldn’t bully me again.
“I took a foul on this, but I feel like I played well against it,” Paschall said NBC Sports.
During the Warriors’ worst record season this year, Paschall was a bright spot for the team in the Bay Area.
In particular, he scored an average of 14.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 60 games, while he has established himself as a valuable spin for the next season.
