Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson joins Stephen Curry as the only players in National Basketball Association history with at least 200 3-pointers in seven consecutive seasons. "We have the greatest fan base in sports".
Klay Thompson is usually the happy-go-lucky Warriors star that everyone seems to love for his laid back personality.
"I expect our crowd to be little more into it, too", Thompson said. "Like, I know it's not the playoffs, but it is our last go-around in Oracle".
Thompson is now only the second player in National Basketball Association history to make at least 200 3-pointers in seven consecutive seasons.
Klay entered the showdown against the Rockets needing just two triples to join his All-Star backcourt running mate in the exclusive club, and he didn't have a hard time doing so. I do know one thing - that we really thrive on the energy at Oracle.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he could see where Thompson's comments were coming from. The defending National Basketball Association champions had just lost to the Suns - who have won just 16 games all year - at Oracle Arena. Kerr and his players have been frustrated that they haven't been able to put on a better show for the Oracle fans this season. "But, it's all tied together". And on the flip side, the fans were probably more excited five years ago than they are now because the journey was fresh and new, and it's different now.
Golden State will move to Chase Center in San Francisco in September. "I think the fans have helped us win at a high level, and we need them, but we got to give them more to cheer about, for sure".
