Jerry West expresses concern about Warriors G Klay Thompson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Warriors executive board member Jerry West, who knows something about scoring, has claimed that his team needs a consistent third one beyond Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

West also expressed wonderment about the performance of the latter in a Game 2 loss to the Grizzlies that wiped out homecourt advantage for Golden State.

Thompson hit just 6-of-15 from the field, missed five of six from distance and committed five turnovers. He looked lost, according to West.

"I've never seen him that off in a game," West told the San Jose Mercury News. "All year long, he never played like that.

"I think Klay is someone who takes everything personal - he wants to succeed so much, he tries so hard ... and (Tuesday) he just did not have it. ... Give Memphis credit, they are not going to let those two guys beat them ... It really comes down to someone else on the team making shots. Someone has to."


Warriors' Klay Thompson makes history with MVP Stephen Curry


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Warriors guard Stephen Curry was named this year's MVP of the NBA. However, he had some serious help in the backcourt. 

Making history was guard Klay Thompson, who averaged 21.7 points per game this season. This marks the highest scoring average for any player sharing the backcourt with an NBA MVP, according to the Contra Costa Times

"I think we all do just because we all work hard with Steph every day," Thompson said. "He pushes us to be a great team so I think we've all got a hand in it."

Warriors coach Steve Kerr credited Thompson's presence on the court in allowing Curry to further excel as a basketball player. 

"Klay being an All-Star, being his backcourt mate, and the incredible shooting range and prowess is one of the reasons Steph has as much room to roam and attack as he does because defenses have to worry about Klay, too," Kerr said. "Klay should absolutely understand he's a big part of this."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Durant's contract with the Thunder expires in 2016 and he'll be a free agent.

"The cap is gonna go up," Thompson said. "David Lee is gonna be off the books. So they are gonna have some salary cap room."
