Klay Thompson sometimes gets lost on the Golden State Warriors. It’s no fault of his own – the team just has two of the five-best basketball players alive and the best defensive player in the world, so even though he is an established star, Thompson is oftentimes the team’s fourth-most important player.
For example, did you know that Thompson had a career-high in points per game this year, averaging 22.3 points a night? His best scoring performance was easily his 60-point explosion that occurred in December. Thompson scored that many points in 29 minutes and did not play in the game’s fourth quarter. To somehow make his night even more absurd, Thompson only dribbled the ball 11 times in the game.
When TNT’s Shaquille O’Neal considers all of this, he cannot fathom why Thompson did not make it onto any of the All-NBA teams this year. The Hall of Famer expressed his disgust late Thursday night in a tweet that included a selfie and random all-caps to make sure you could see how confused and frustrated he was that Thompson was left out.
