If you type “Klay Thompson shooting slump” into Google, you’ll find articles about the Golden State Warriors’ all-star guard’s shooting slumps from 2015, 2016, 2017, and now 2018.
In other words, if this year’s already-tired discussion about Klay Thompson’s shooting slump gives you a deja vu feeling, it’s because we have had this conversation every single year while Thompson has been selected for the NBA All-Star game and the Warriors have made the NBA finals, winning three times.
So why on earth do people continue to worry about his slumps, even when he’s just 3-for-22 as he is this season?

Who knows ...
Thankfully, we have a coach with common sense running the team.
Based on Thompson’s track record, he could very well bust out of that slump tonight.
