Journey to the best of Kuminga
The episode initially addresses the turning point of the same year with Kuminga, who is frustrated by the lack of continuity in the rotation, in terms of minutes and role, as a prelude to his consolidation. A private meeting with Warriors coach Steve Kerr served as an incentive for the team to offer a different role, with greater importance, to the young African player, who responded by displaying the best level of his career.
Uncertainty in warriors
After explaining the reasons and consequences of the level jump in Kuminga, the chapter focuses in its final part on breaking down the uncertainty experienced by the Warriors Project, champions four times over the past decade. Draymond Green, the collective thermometer of that period, collects views and responsibility for his instability, which has afflicted Golden State, in a crossroads situation that must be resolved. In doing so, Kuminga's development, now dizzying, serves as a spotlight on the franchise's future.
