Klay Thompson found out he wasn't an All-NBA selection and won't be eligible for a supermax contract this offseason during his media availability on Thursday.
“When you go to five straight Finals, it takes more than a couple All-NBA guys," said Thompson. "Whatever. I'd rather win a championship than make Third Team All-NBA."
Thompson was then asked how he felt about contract amounts being determined by All-NBA voting.
"Do I think there are that many guards better than me in the league? No.”
Klay Thompson learns he didn’t make All-NBA (“Oh I didn’t?”) and is clearly a little ticked (it affects his next contract): “When you go to five straight Finals, it takes more than a couple All-NBA guys...Do I think there are that many guards better than me? No.” pic.twitter.com/bW5DiBavo1
