Klay Thompson thinks he belongs in Top 75 list

- by

One notable snub was Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson, who reacted to the news with a pointed message on Instagram. “Maybe I’m just naive in my ability to play basketball, but in my head I’m top 75 all time,” wrote Thompson. “PERIOD. #fuelforthefire #NBA75”

Draymond Green more disappointed that Klay Thompson was left off NBA’s top 75 list than upset at his exclusion. Draymond: “I’ll keep building on my resume” and expressed optimism he’ll be in top 100 list in 25 years pic.twitter.com/eq96xVPjst1:28 AM

Draymond Green talked about him and Klay not making the top 75 players of all time. “I’m more frustrated for Klay (Thompson) than myself.” – 1:27 AM

Let’s do this again in the spring with Klay and (hopefully) Kawhi healthy. – 12:40 AM

Curry, Draymond, and Iguodala closing it out like old times. Wiggins and DLee in the Barnes/Klay spots though. – 12:26 AM

Klay Thompson came out after intros and sat at the end of the bench. He’s sipping what looks like a smoothie. He took a couple deep breaths and closed his eyes momentarily. Gotta be tough for him not to be out there on opening night. – 10:13 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Steph Curry addressed the Warriors crowd before tip: “Cannot wait to see where the season goes. Cannot wait to welcome Klay Thompson back.” – 10:12 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Kerr on the Top 75, and if Klay & Draymond were snubbed: “How do you differentiate? Seems like there are 50-60 guys who are automatic and then you’re just – pick one.
“I think those guys are top 75 based on winning, two-way basketball, everything that matters more than stats.” – 8:19 PM

Jordan Clarkson has made at least one 3P in each of his last 95 games, tying Klay Thompson for the fourth-longest such streak in NBA history.
He has made at least one 3P in each of his last 92 games in which he’s come off the bench, by far the longest such streak in NBA history. pic.twitter.com/8PJ9gJnUNb10:01 AM
