Warriors coach Steve Kerr reveals vintage Klay Thompson practice moments

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says shooting guard Klay Thompson is looking “really bouncy” during the team’s in-market bubble.

Thompson, who missed the entire 2018-19 season recovering from the ACL tear he suffered in Game 6 of the 2019 Finals against the Toronto Raptors at Oracle Arena, has been turning heads left and right at Warriors practice.

This should get Warriors fans excited:

“Yesterday, he had several (vintage moments),” Steve Kerr said about Klay Thompson, via Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

“Pulling up and splashing a 30-footer in transition. He’s looking really bouncy. Had a dunk off one foot yesterday and came right back down in transition and had a dunk off two feet.”

This is terrific news for the Warriors, who had the worst record in the NBA in 2019-20 before games were suspended in March due to COVID-19.

With stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson leading the way next season, expect the Warriors to be back in the playoffs and contending for a championship. Even though it was tough to watch the Dubs struggle mightily this season, the silver lining is that Curry and Thompson got some much-needed rest after playing in five straight NBA Finals heading into the 2019-20 campaign.

Since getting drafted in 2011 out of Washington State, Thompson has compiled regular-season averages of 19.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. The five-time All-Star is extremely motivated to get back on top after so many pundits deemed the Warriors’ dynasty as “toast” following the departure of two-time Finals MVP Kevin Durant.
