Klay Thompson is one of the best pure shooters in NBA history he is also one of the greatest two-way players we have in our game today. There is no doubt that the NBA took a hit with the Klay Thompson news today. When Klay’s career is over, I’d expect him to have a place in the Hall-Of-Fame. He’s that special.
I’m also expecting Klay Thompson to come back from this. Klay is 31-years old. He’ll miss the 2021 season, but I’m betting that he already has his sights set on coming back even stronger for the 2021-2022 season. That’s how he is built.
This will be a big hit for the Warriors’ title hopes for next season. They were expecting to get a healthy Steph and Klay back, and were poised to be a favorite to win the championship. Now, things will get a lot harder. I’m not sure the Warriors can survive life without their shooting guard.
Rest up Klay, we’ll be here waiting to cheer you on when you get back.
