Golden State Warriors All-Star Klay Thompson recovers from his torn ACL, and it looks like he is doing a really good job.
Thompson suffered his injury in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and is expected to miss the entire 2019-20 season. Well, sources reveal that Thompson may return to the floor a lot earlier.
Thompson had a surgery to fix his ACL tear, and hopes
to return for the All-Star break.
This doesn’t come as a surprise to us. Thompson took
his free throws before leaving the game, and even wanted to go back to the
The Warriors are ready to replace Thompson, which is why they added D’Angelo Russell.
If you ask the All-Star, he will say that the Warriors
dynasty isn’t over.
“I think that’s a little premature, saying there’s no more dynasty,” Thompson said. “I mean, we still have Stephen Curry, a two-time MVP. Draymond Green, a Defensive Player of the Year. I think D’Angelo Russell was an incredible get for us, I mean, the kid’s gonna blossom into a superstar in this league. To say the dynasty is over I think is a little ignorant, because I think I’m gonna come back 110 percent, I think I’m gonna come back even better and more athletic. It would not be smart to count the Dubs out, that’s all I’ll say.”
Head coach Steve Kerr is thrilled to have his star
players in the core. Thompson may miss most of the season, but he is definitely
coming back. He signed a contract extension, remember?
“I’m just excited that we’ve got Draymond, Steph, Klay, guys,
you know, who’ve been the core of this thing at the center along with Andre,
Shaun Livingston and Kevin who have all departed,” Kerr said. “But the three
guys…of the main guys who have been here since the beginning, to have them
locked up, so that we can transition into the next era is really critical. So
I’m really thrilled Draymond is back on the team.”
Warriors General Manager Bob Myers was all in when it comes to keeping Kevin Durant
and Thompson on the roster. Durant is gone, but Thompson will join Curry and
Green next year.
“All I’ll say is that those guys are highly important to us
and deserving of being rewarded in the right manner,” Myers told reporters. “It’s hard to find high-quality people, and
both of them are that. And so you just—try to keep those guys within these walls
the best you can.”
