“I mean, anytime I am on the court with those two, I’m very grateful because I have friends in this league who tell me how lucky I am to play with my friends and experience that continuity of having teammates for over a decade. I never take it for granted being out there with number 23 and 30. I did not know that but that is really cool to think about. It’s a lot of wins and hopefully many more to come,” 

The trio have been together for 12 years. Under the same roof and flexing the same badge, they have created history together. Four championships, All-Star selections, and countless memories characterize their stay in the Bay. Given Klay hasn’t reached an agreement to extend yet, this might be the last run for the trio.
