Klay Thompson is an all-time great shooter and a multiple-time All-Star. He has won three championships with the Golden State Warriors, and it's clear that he is a legend that is widely respected across the league, as well as by fans.
Despite all of his accomplishments, Klay Thompson was left off the All-Time NBA 75 list, which is unfortunate, as he played a huge part in the Golden State Warriors dominating the mid-2010s era of basketball. Klay Thompson has already commented on the snub, claiming that in his head, there's no doubt that he should be top 75.
Stephen Curry and Draymond Green have recently lightheartedly trolled Klay Thompson about his snub, by hanging a No. 77 jersey in his locker. There were 76 people overall selected to the All-Time list due to a tie in voting, so it seems as though the suggestion is that he should have been the 77th.
It's obvious that Klay Thompson clearly had a case to be on the list, and hopefully, his omission will give him more motivation to come back better than ever. Thompson has not played in an NBA game since the 2018-19 season, and it'll certainly be good to see him return. If the Golden State Warriors start winning again and Thompson has more great seasons, perhaps he'll be included in the next list by the NBA.
Some people have already stated that with Klay Thompson's return the Warriors could win the 2021-22 NBA championship, and that'll certainly be great considering they've missed the playoffs the last two seasons. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have great chemistry with one another, and perhaps they will be able to win another title. The Warriors are currently 2-0, and if they can hold on until Thompson's return, they could have a really good season.
