Klay Thompson is one of the best shooters in the NBA, alongside his “splash brother” Stephen Curry. The “splash brothers” tandem made their name in a tremendous playoff run for the Golden State Warriors in 2013. Thompson will be a star in this league simply because of his offensive mechanics.

He can shoot the ball from anywhere on the court, drive, pass, and has the athletic ability to rise up and throw it down. Many people were surprised about the skill set Thompson has, and he is only improving. Going into his 3rd NBA season, Thompson can make a big impact in the upcoming season.

Golden State fans watch out because its going to get a little wet in Oracle Arena this season.
