Klay Thompson wasn't happy to learn he didn't make the top 75 greatest players ever list, as well as other big names like Kyrie Irving, Dwight Howard and more. The Golden State Warriors shooting guard was pissed when he first found out he wasn't part of the elite group, sending a message on social media.
"Maybe I’m just naive in my ability to play basketball, but in my head I’m TOP 75 all time."
After more players and fans showed their unhappiness with some snubs, things apparently cooled off. Well, not for Klay. The player is still salty about this decision and took to Instagram again to share another message.
The 3x NBA champion is still angry at the fact he wasn't included on the list, taking a shot at the list and those who vote to make it. The Splash Brother used an Instagram story this time, sending a big message.
Woke up this AM, still pissed about this stupid ass list. Ga damn I can't wait to hoop again. Sick of the disrespect. Winning isn't everything to some people like it is to me I guess.
It's clear that Klay isn't happy with this list. He's one of the best shooters of all time, responsible for changing the game with Stephen Curry, and it's disrespectful that he was left out this top.
After missing the last two campaigns due to injuries, Thompson is getting ready for a revenge season. The shooting guard has been showing his quality in videos, warning the league about his return. With the recent developments, it's clear that Klay is inspired to torch rivals night in and night out.
The Warriors started this season with two big wins against the Lakers and Clippers. If Steph Curry can keep them afloat before Klay returns, this team will be a menace once they have their talented backcourt together on the floor.
