Eric Paschall may be undersized big. Paschall may have been a second-round pick. Paschall may have spent five years at the collegiate level developing his game. While those all may seem like negatives, Eric Paschall doesn’t care.
He exploded onto the scene his rookie season, shining on a team that needed the extra energy. Paschall plays with a swagger that’s just not easy to find.
He is a high-energy, screen-setting, play-harder-than-you type of player, and he showed it on almost a gamely basis this past season, one reason he was able to manage 14 points per game on nearly 50% from the field.
Albeit just 6-foot-6, Paschall played the bulk of his minutes at the four. Also showing competence at shooting the three, the 23-year-old certainly has many areas to improve on, but his hard work has certainly paid off in a big way.
He’s destined to be a major piece on this championship roster next season, and with a Draymond Green mentality, he should be able to thrive for the Warriors throughout the course of his career.
He embodies everything the Warriors want to be known for, and he showed all that his rookie season.
His mentality, his efficiency, and his intangibles are all why Paschall has the highest ceiling of any Warriors’ prospect.
