SG Klay Thompson goes to Golden State 11th overall: Grade A-

Published on June 24, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Klay Thompson’s dad played in the NBA, now he will play for the Golden State Warriors.  Klay is the best long range shooter in the draft.  I thought the Warriors might get someone more physical, but hey we all know the Warriors like to score.  Thompson did it all for Washington State last year from scoring to rebounding to passing, and he even can block the ball. He was a one man show for his team. He may have some character concerns as he was suspended some last year. Think Kevin Martin.

Strengths- He is a pure shooter with range, has basketball IQ, quick and can create his own shoot. Weaknesses- lacks elite athleticism, needs to add muscle, character concerns.
