Klay Thompson is widely known as one of the best shooters of all time, and he was a key part of the Golden State Warriors dynasty. He's a 3-time champion and a 5-time All-Star. Most fans would consider him an all-time great.
The NBA has recently revealed their top 75 of all-time list which obviously featured the 75 greatest players to play the game of basketball. Klay Thompson was not featured, and he clearly wasn't happy about the snub from the league. In an Instagram post, Thompson stated that in his head, he was clearly a top 75 player in NBA history.
Maybe I'm just naive in my ability to play basketball, but in my head, I'm top 75 all-time.
While he may have been omitted from the list, it's easy to make a case for Klay Thompson being on there. He was part of one of the most influential dynasties in basketball, and along with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, he simply changed the game. He's also had many outstanding individual moments, with some explosive scoring games.
He may have been snubbed, but Klay Thompson will have a chance to prove that he deserves to be on the list once he comes back from his injury. The Golden State Warriors will be trying to compete for yet another championship this year, and Klay Thompson's return will be key to their aspirations. When Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are all playing, the Golden State Warriors are hard to stop.
At the end of the day, Klay Thompson has garnered a lot of fans with his play, and many people believe that he deserved to be on the list. Hopefully, Klay Thompson is able to come back strong and remind everyone just how good he is.
