One of the notable players on Team USA for the 2014 FIBA World Cup was Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson who provided a nice shooting streak during the team’s gold medal run.
Thompson’s teammate Stephen Curry was also on the squad and during a recent interview with the San Jose Mercury News, Curry spoke highly of his teammate.
When asked if he’s one of the best two-way shooting guards in the league, Curry responded with this:
“I’d put him up against anybody,” Curry said. “I think he does what he does every single night. You saw what he did this summer, where he’s taken his game these past three years. You can do whatever kind of ranking, scale or whatever. He’s proven that it’s not just talk, that he’s definitely impactful on both ends of the floor and knows how to play the game, and we’re lucky to have him.”
We will see if the splash brothers will propel Golden State to new heights in the coming months!
