Jordan Clarkson has made at least one 3P in 96 straight games, passing Klay Thompson for the fourth-longest such streak in NBA history.
He has made at least one 3P in each of his last 93 games in which he’s come off the bench, the longest such streak in NBA history by 48 games. pic.twitter.com/nB2zUqxYUB10:28 AM

Lakers coach Frank Vogel taking issue with Dwight Howard and Klay Thompson not being on NBA Top 75 list. Vogel called it “surreal” that LeBron, AD, Westbrook and Melo are all on the list pic.twitter.com/fqfCdJ22KS8:23 PM

Some only believe Klay Thompson should be top 75 because he played with Curry and Durant and won 3 titles (two with KD).
But there were far better all-round players left off that list. Guys who had to carry their teams.
T-Mac, Nique, Vince, etc.
Klay wasn’t snubbed. – 8:18 PM

Klay did not make the 75 Greatest Team. Because he’s not one of the 75 Greatest. He didn’t get snubbed. Resume: 5x All-Star, 2x All-NBA, 1x All-Defense. Way too thin. He’s only played 615 games. Only AD has played fewer. And he didn’t deserve to be on. – 8:03 PM

The Klay Thompson thing is out of control.
He has been named All-NBA twice. That means only twice has he been recognized as one of the 15 best players in the NBA yet he should be named one of the 75 best ever?
The math just doesn’t add up. – 7:21 PM
The Ringer @ringernba
Both @Logan Murdock and @Bell19Raja agree: Having 85-90% of the old Klay Thompson would change everything for the Warriors. #RealOnes pic.twitter.com/Ni7Le5ZVc46:11 PM

Strange but true: Kenyon Martin sold Klay Thompson his boat. No, not that Kenyon Martin. nytimes.com/2021/10/22/spo…12:45 PM

Talked to Klay Thompson about being the only NBA player who commutes to work on a 37-foot fishing boat: nytimes.com/2021/10/22/spo…12:00 PM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
I can think of about 30 players who could have made the NBA’s Top 75 list and didn’t. But the list is as close to unimpeachable as you’re going to get. I can’t think of a single one I’d take off to put someone on. Sorry, Klay. – 11:39 AM
Jordan Schultz @Schultz_Report
SMH an absolute joke that Klay, Kyrie and Tony Parker weren’t named to the NBA’s Top 75 list! With respect to some of the greats from the 60s and 70s (think Cousy, DeBusschere and even Pistol Pete), there’s simply no way that Klay, Kyrie and TP are behind these dudes. No way! – 11:19 AM

Sean Highkin: Dame mentions Dwight Howard, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady and Alex English as players he was surprised didn’t make it. “Out of all the players on there, I think I was the shortest tenured and the youngest. But I’m not the one making the list.” -via Twitter @highkin / October 23, 2021
