The Golden State Warriors lost in the play-in tournament on Tuesday against the Sacramento Kings. Finishing in 10th place is not how the Warriors saw this season going, and it was a big disappointment. Still, there were some bright spots on the season, and one of those bright spots was the play of rookie Brandin Podziemski. Podziemski had a great rookie season, and he finished the year averaging 9.2 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 3.7 APG.

Brandin Podziemski seems to have a bright future ahead of him, and he talked about his rookie season after the loss on Tuesday. He is already thinking about how he can improve and how his game look different down the road.

“I think the ball will be in my hands a little bit more and just being more efficient, trying to take the burden off Steph and Draymond’s shoulders,” Podziemski said, according to an article from “When we got into games that we really need to win, we kind of just deferred to Steph and I think that’s natural, just because of the level that he’s at and that he’s been doing for so long, but I think for our other guys it’s about how can we impact games that are meaningful and take the burden off his shoulders.”

This season wasn’t one that Warriors fans have been used to as they have had a lot of success throughout the past 10 or so years. It’s going to be interesting to see if Golden State can bounce back next year, and it will be interesting to see what Brandin Podziemski’s role will look like as well.
