Jarrett Jack joins Jim Kozimor on Chronicle Live to explain the role he expects to play as a veteran on the bench.
Warriors within a win on opening night the home opener coming up on Friday Jarrett Jack a big piece of the puzzle that fourth quarter joining us here on the program -- let's start with that play. We CU we see Landry big played big part of the game. Just how important is the bench going to be but also the veterans what role they gonna play for this team. A tremendous role army called -- when he's on the floor you know 23 years now so Rome you know we kind of some camaraderie or -- for us in the pick and roll. But arm you know the guys -- eventually product so isn't. Try and establish some of an energy calm throughout the course of the ballgame. And we also got a chance to see all of the Warriors are some questions as to just how much stepped curry -- player whether. Andrew Bogut was gonna be out there how good is it that you guys are finally altogether on the floor and are you still working through things even on the season is underway. Arm Naomi Campbell's been -- all on the injury. So you know pretty much the entire summer and we guy here is very very difficult for us to watch those guys he'll compete in this work hard to look and is. Dislocated so the bike and kinda low impact stuff we going to do and so Watson finally get to work yourself back in the NBA shape to get ready for game one is. You know blessed and scouts what is your role in this team you brought to the Warriors to do what they told you they wanna get -- your arm. The leader you know arm. Does that mentality that who we're gonna say is a stigma that Pete who would you as a solve ball club a finesse team a team now only wants outscored UN. In Martinez really don't buy into the deep isn't on the floor. You come here from new -- where you had in some ways a career year and scoring and assists. So how do you have to make an adjustment now to be a leader who comes in off the -- -- I've been in this situation before and I'm gonna start in this -- governor got a camel today and so. There's not a situation that's foreign to me and that ended the day I just wanna play basketball. And -- -- win and -- who calls for me to come -- to an instant Soviet. -- combination guard a lot bigger roles going to be in the point guard role mar our Mark Jackson your head coach this is a guy was it a great point guard in the NBA what do you think you can learn. What can he impart on you that we'll take your game just to another -- your good -- now maybe add some. Do you -- does the confidence level knowing he has in. He tells me all the time when you show is just showing he loosens the -- he allowed me to come out then. Arnold and me for my imprint on the ball game he doesn't. Force you to to play his way and I think it allows you grow in a sense than. You know -- isn't beneficial for me you know staff clay and other guys you just kind of erase it. Cheer when the Warriors are healthy you have two very good big men -- we talked about David Lee is there as well for a guard. What is it like heaven to guys close to seven foot or seven foot on the floor at the same time how does it up again. I mean in this league. The more towns and the more skill guys to get really Gaza -- -- in the process Q does that. Play in the paint is on an incredible lift for us you know a guy like Andrew Bogut. Who did not score on the block com as well -- make plays from the elbow on singles and David Lee you know these Gaza's. -- been the impact players for you know since they came as a league and I'm just happy militant. You know warrior fans are loyal loyal crew here in Bay Area sports and there's been quite a drop for the lawyers when it comes to get into the playoffs. Internally with you guys you guys have some veterans for the expectations for you guys this season. -- we that we don't put cap or anything you know we don't just say playoffs you know -- lessen the minute that you know and I mean -- No no limits in that that's kind of the thing kind of -- each other we come out here.

As an opposition player what was it like to come here because I. As I. I maintain that the Bay Area fans love the Warriors in a different since it seems that whether it's a Giants or an a's fan a Raiders or forty niner fan they can come together with the heat with the Warriors what was it like coming here as a player for another team. -- -- -- -- wanted to more hostile environments -- all of pro sports not just you know the NBA home.
