Thanks for ignoring everything I wrote. If you watched Brooklyn you would know how their system was completely built around the pick and roll, while Golden State used less pick and roll than any team in the NBA.

Brooklyn used the pick and roll almost twice as often as Golden State last year, and every possession.

In 49.9% of Russell’s plays last year, he was the pick and roll ball handler. Curry did it 21.6% of the time.

If you think that Russell will be given carte blanche to run the pick and roll, while Curry stands in the corner waiting for a pass, there’s no point in even writing.
