Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob talks with ‘The Warriors insider Podcast’ about one half of the Splash Brothers, Klay Thompson:
“Personally, I think he’s the greatest two-guard — I’m old school. I know it’s positionless basketball, but I go by positions. To me, he’s the greatest two-guard on the planet,” Lacob said. “He’s both ends. He’s a two-way player. He’s got great size and he’s an incredible shooter and he plays hard.
“What more can you ask for than Klay Thompson? Why would you not want Klay Thompson?”
Before the injury, Thompson averaged 20.7 points (45%FG, 44% 3P, 90% FT) and 4.1 rebounds over 21 playoff games.
He signed a new five-year, $190MM max contract with the Warriors.
