Interesting article. Much of it seems like the standard stuff, but it does seem as though he has matured some from his Lakers days. Interesting part is when asked if he expects to be playing off-ball more with Steph as the PG; he doesn't directly answer (since he said he hasn't had any detailed conversations with Kerr yet) but he talked about how basketball today doesn't have true PG's and centers like they did in the the past. It is more "position-less basketball" without designated specific roles and responsibilities. I am curious to see how Kerr handles the different skillsets that this team has compared to the team from previous seasons.

I think it's going to be fluid for most of the way until Klay comes back, and then another correction or adjustment once he is back.

I saw lots of off ball instances for both Steph and Russell, but when either is out there without the other, then each guy will play more on ball.

Draymond allows them to work off of screens and such, but they will also have plenty of iso time throughout the games. Especially for Russell when he's leading a bench squad.
