What about the other splash brother, Klay Thompson?

Thompson will be entering the first year of his 4-year, $70 million extension, and he will be looking to show the organization, the fans, and the league that he is worth every penny. Thompson has always been a bit of streaky player. Some months he is lighting up the score board, pouring in 37 points in a single quarter, and completely shooting the lights out.

Other months, he’s so all over the place that he has you screaming at your TV and praying he stops shooting.

Something most fans — not to mention the organization — would like to see from Thompson this year is more consistency. He has all the tools to be an elite scorer. His scoring numbers have gone up every year he’s been in the league.

Last year he averaged 21.7 points per game, up from his 18.4 he averaged the year before. His assists, rebounds, field goal percentage, three point percentage, and free throw percentage all made decent jumps from the year prior as well.

This would seem to suggest that Thompson, if he can find some consistency in his game, can be a Warriors’ player that sees major improvement.
