Veteran guard Jason Terry is preparing for his 18th NBA season, his first with the Milwaukee Bucks. On Wednesday, the outspoken 39-year-old made some bold claims while speaking with SiriusXM NBA Radio (via JD Shaw of Def Pen). He threw his two cents into the debate over whether Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors or James Harden of the Houston Rockets is the best shooting guard in the league, and he didn’t mince his words in supporting Harden: [Thompson’s] not leading s***. If he doesn’t make shots, how effective is he? Go watch Klay Thompson vs. James Harden from last year and see what [LeBron] James did to him. Every time James got by him, you know who was there? Draymond Green or Andrew Bogut. … I’m not a Klay Thompson hater. It’s just when you put him up against James Harden, there’s no comparison.
Are you tired of answering questions about next season yet? Klay Thompson: Yes. Yes. I just want to go out there and prove to people how great we can be. Everyday at the media session here I have to answer questions about it. ‘Oh, how’s the chemistry between you three.’ Everyday… But it’s part of the territory. I just give some automated answers. I can be pretty robotic. There’s a lot of hype surrounding the franchise now, and deservedly so. It’s part of our job, we have to answer those questions.
Klay Thompson: We added Kevin and I couldn’t be more excited about our future and what could happen, but it’ll take a long time to get over that loss, man. It was hard. Especially being up 3-1, and how good we felt like we were, we controlled our own destiny and we didn’t get it done. But that’s life, it’s basketball, it wasn’t in the cards. It’s going to take a long time to get over that, man. You always think about the one possession that could have changed it. It came down to the last three minutes for us to be back-to-back champions.
