Klay Thompson: I'd Rather Win Championship Than Make Third Team All-NBA 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu May 23, 2019 9:31 pm

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.”

I think I could make Klay cry. He’s such a fcking baby. He almost cried during the postgame interview in the 2016 okc series when they lost a game. :nod:

Yup I would rather have a guy like Harden who went straight to a strip club after losing a playoff series! :nod:
