Making his mark on the league as early as his third season in the NBA, Teague has been on some of the most successful teams of the past decade. His Hawks and even a few of Teague’s Pacers’ teams were excellent and forces in the East.
However, there’s been one problem — LeBron James. Teague and his teams have never been able to get over the hump when playing James. If he joins Golden State, he’ll have the same problem.
This time, he’d be battling it with Curry and Thompson by his side. That said, the 6-foot-3, 32-year-old averaged 10.9 points per game on 44% shooting.
It was a down year for Teague who was at 12.1 points and 8.2 assists per game a season ago. Teague started just 17 games in 59 appearances, his lowest ratio since his rookie season almost a decade ago.
It may be time he starts to ride into the sunset, and as a focal point of the Warriors second unit, he could do just that while also contending for a championship.
