But if Thompson can’t reach his potential with the Warriors, well, it sounds as if the blame won’t fall on the organization. “You can tell it’s a first-class organization,” Thompson said. “No offense to Sac, but there was no stability in the seven years that I was there. You could just tell, from Day 1, when the trade went through, how differently things went on and off the court. “Regardless of this being my eighth season, I’m trying to learn what it takes to win and be around that atmosphere. I’m kind of soaking up all of the information with a sponge. It’s not going to change overnight, but you can just tell things are sharper and things are going to be more crisp as preseason and as practices go.”
Jason Thompson: I’m just so excited to be in a winning situation. In my seven years, I’ve never been to the playoffs, so this environment is definitely different. Playing opening night on national TV, playing on Christmas…it’s new to me! This team knows what it takes to win. But the West has gotten stronger, so it’s good to bring firepower to a team and be in a position to help get this group back to where they were last year. From top to bottom, I feel like we have a really good roster, and my plan is to absorb everything like a sponge. I’m here to do things offensively and defensively, and bring a lot of energy to the team. It’s still early, and so much is going to depend on match-ups and different situations.
