Klay Thompson Talks Reuniting With Draymond Green and Steph Curry for the First Time This Season
The return of the big three.
After almost two and a half years, the Golden State Warriors‘ “Big Three” has finally reunited on the basketball court.
Post-win against the Washington Wizards, Klay Thompson revealed how he felt about playing with Steph Curry and Draymond Green again. The sharpshooter was evidently sentimental and said,
“It was magical. I’m looking forward to these future games as well because we’re going to rebuild our chemistry and just have fun while doing it. I appreciate every night we have with each other. I saw a stat that said every playoff game we have started together we have never lost a series. So, hopefully, we can continue the trend in 2022.”
The last time the three played together was in the 2019 Finals when Kevin Durant and Thompson himself suffered devastating injuries that changed the course of their NBA careers. While Durant left Dub Nation, Thompson stayed with the Warriors. In another press conference, Curry also commented on playing with the two again stating that what they have is “built on 10 years of experience and chemistry and winning.” He added, “And an understanding of how we do things. No matter how much time we have off, we can get right back to it…We want to keep building on that. We know each other like the back of our hand and we complement each other very well. There’s a lot of confidence in that.”
With the explosive win, Curry, Thompson and Green proved that they are still a force to be reckoned with.
