"Sick Of The Disrespect!": Klay Thompson Is Still Fuming Over Snub


He hasn't played an NBA game in two years, but those competitive fires are obviously still burning for Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors. He was one of the more notable names missing when the NBA's "Top 75 Players" of all-time was released this week. And he isn't taking it lightly.

"Woke up this AM, still pissed about this stupid ass list," Thompson wrote on Instagram. "Ga damn I can' wait to hoop again. Sick of the disrespect. Winning isn't everything to some people like it is to me I guess."

This follows up his Instagram post of Thursday night, when the snub was fresh off the presses: "Maybe I'm just naive in my ability to play basketball, but in my head I'm top 75 all-time."

Thompson's splash brother Steph Curry was, of course, named one of the 75 greatest, but another one of his teammates who some thought should warrant strong consideration, Draymond Green, also missed out. But he wanted to talk about Klay rather than himself. 

"I'm more frustrated for Klay than I am for myself, there is not many people that can do what Klay does on the basketball court and with his resume," Draymond told reporters"It's hard to leave him off a team like that. For myself, I'll just keep building my resume, and hopefully in 25 years, I'll be on the top 100. 

And naturally, Warriors coach Steve Kerr was supporting both Klay and Dray.

"I definitely think both guys are top 75," said Kerr. "Just based on winning and two-way basketball and everything that really matters, that matter more than statistics and anything related to numbers. What matters is if you're winning championships, then that's what counts. So I would have hoped and thought both guys would be on there." 

The debate rages on.
