Ever since tearing his ACL in game 6 of the NBA finals last season, Klay Thompson has struggled to get back on the court. The Golden State Warriors have also struggled in the absence of the ‘Splash Brothers’ as both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have missed most and all the season, respectively. Their coach Steve Kerr recently drove up to Orange County to catch a glimpse of Klay’s workout.
The 5x NBA champion recently spoke to KNBR and said: “It was great to see him.” Kerr also spoke about his game: “He looked great. He was moving well and, as you would expect, just knocking down [shots]. So, he looked good. He’s not playing ‘live’ yet, he hasn’t done any contact stuff, but that’s kind of the final step and there’s obviously plenty of time for that. He’s right on schedule, and everything’s going well.”
The Golden State Warriors will return to their former glory
This season has been an absolute disaster for the Warriors as they hold the worst record in the league. The Warriors are seeded dead last in the Western Conference with a 15-50 record. The Warriors have not been included in the 22 teams that will resume this season in Orlando. Golden State will most likely take the court earliest when the next season starts. The only member of the Warriors in the awards season is Eric Paschall, who has been included in the All-Rookie team this season.
The Big 3 of the Warriors, namely Steph, Klay, and Draymond Green, will return next season and redeem the franchise. The addition of Andrew Wiggins to the team also increases the scoring depth of the roster. Golden State is one of the very few teams who have missed the playoffs after being in the finals in the prior year.
Eric Paschall will be the Warriors’ lone rep in awards season. He will be on an All-Rookie team. A conversation with Paschall about his big debut, his offseason plan and more https://t.co/I3r4NLOwRp
