The Golden State Warriors added to the best backcourt in basketball this Summer when they worked out a deal to acquire All-Star D'Angelo Russell as part of the Kevin Durant-Brooklyn Nets trade.
Although some have questioned where Russell will fit in once Klay Thompson returns from injury, the 23-year old point guard will have an immediate impact as Thompson isn't expected back until after the All Star break, at the earliest. And when Klay is healthy, the Warriors will have a three-headed monster of a backcourt.
During a recent interview with HoopsHype, Russell envisioned what it will be like when the trio of All Stars are in full swing.
"I think it's like a video game. You got three guys who can shoot the three at a high clip," Russell described to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype. "I think that's really exciting for the fans. Threes are obviously worth more than twos at the end of the day, so I think it gives us an opportunity to win. I'm so excited, and I think we're going to bring a lot of excitement [to the fans]."
