Klay Thompson says he’s a fan of watching Golden State’s games
Klay Thompson has no shame in admitting he watches his own games. Yes, even after watching film with the coaches and the rest of his teammates, the standout shooting guard will watch the occasional Warriors game just because.
“I’m a fan of watching our games, because we make the right play,” Thompson said, according to Connor LeTourneau of The San Francisco Chronicle.
While it might seem overly corny to watch one’s own work, it’s really no different than a boxer watching his own past fights, or a comedian replaying tape of his last show. There is a love for the craft one puts into the work that is done on a daily basis and sometimes taking a look at the fruits one has reaped through the process can make it all worthwhile.
Thompson’s work has spoken for himself this season, scoring at his usual 20-plus-point clip while shooting 51.1 percent from the floor and a blistering 47.7 percent from beyond the arc.
After a first few weeks of struggles with turnovers, Golden State has rallied to cut back on them, showing in the way of seven straight wins, including 10 of the last 11 outings.
