Klay Thompson may be one of the more calm and quiet members of the Golden State Warriors, but that doesn’t diminish his star talent one bit. The shooting guard had a stunningly strong 2017-18 season, averaging 20.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game, while shooting a blistering 44.0% from beyond the arc (on a whopping 7.1 attempts per game!).
His big year earned him his fourth-straight selection to the All-Star Game, and helped the Warriors win their second consecutive NBA title, and their third in the last four years.
So let’s celebrate it with Thompson’s top plays of the year, complete with passes, blocks, dunks, and most importantly, three-pointers.
Watching these highlights, I can only think of two things. First, can it please be October 16 already? I am more than ready to watch the Warriors again. And second, thank goodness Thompson has said he wants to retire with the Warriors. Watching him shoot a jump shot is about the prettiest thing in the history of the sport.
The season will be here soon, and then we can watch actual Warriors games. Until then, these highlights are worth watching, and re-watching.
