HONESTLY! How many times do you need to step on the line when positioning yourself to shoot a "3" and turning the ball over before you realize you need to know where your feet are on the god damned floor? It's one of the most fundamental of all fundamentals, seriously! We've played 36 games already plus however many he played and/or started last season and he still makes the same stupid *** mistakes over and over again, he reminds me a lot of Monta Ellis. Good-great talent but not enough IQ to make in game adjustments or refine his skills to become better and less prone to mistakes. Not only did he literally lose the game for us against Denver in the 2nd meeting by missing 2 critical free throws that would have sealed the game for us (what kind of ubah natural shooter misses free throws?), he also played a big part in us losing last night because his mind was somewhere else and he threw the ball away multiple times, especially the one in the beginning of the 4th quarter when the Nuggets made their comeback! It pisses me off to see us constantly lose to Denver (1-3 vs them this season), who isn't all that great. If they were so damn elite, like all the "experts" think, then they would have a better record than us.

    I've said this before, recently. I think it's time to move Thompson while other teams around the league still think he has such incredible potential. However, the more they get to see him play, the sooner they are going to realize, what I've known for a couple weeks, he simply is NOT that good. We need 3 things pretty bad, better 5's (to hold down the fort until Bogut returns, if he ever does), more athletic/explosive guards (that can penetrate the lane and disrupt opposing defenses) and a "go-to" guy down the stretch that can put a game away and seal a victory for us. For an honorable mention, we also need to unload either or both of Biedrin's and Jefferson's contracts. Moving Thompson could possibly make this happen.
    Chill. Fundamentals like that are super easy to fix. The only time they appear unfixable is if you have been in the league for seven years. He is a sophomore and all of these problems will eventually go away as he gains more experience.

    I agree with you that it's easy to fix. I don't think he ever will though. The reason for this is because this goes all the way back to elementary school or whenever he first started playing organized ball. He should have had this problem ironed out before he got to high school! If he's going to step on a line, it should be the 3-point line and not the sideline. It's so simple that it hurts to think about it. An NBA player, making millions of dollars, an extremely well paid "PROFESSIONAL" that has so many mental lapses. If I had a mental lapse in my line of work, I would get sued and could face potential jail time! These players have it so fricken easy! Which is why these mistakes are so shocking! Plus, he's the son of a former NBA player, an 2-time NBA champion nonetheless! How in the hell does the son of a former championship player make THIS many simple, yet critical errors that costs his team games?!

    Don't worry, they will get fixed. There are only a few players in the NBA who are around a long time that don't fix them up and at that point they are relying on natural ability. Klay will fix it. Bank on it.

    Trading Thompson would be a mistake. He has alot to improve on but his shooting ability and size for a 2 is hard to find. I highly doubt he becomes as good as Ray Allen during his prime, but there games are comparable if Klay can improve driving to the basket. Lets not forget he is only 23 years old.

    Barnes should develop into a solid all-around player and his slashing ability with Curry and Thompson on the perimeter seems like a great fit. Let them develop together.

    I'm taking the general managers opinions over some guys on PSD. And they seem to think Thompson will be pretty good. Listen the Curry-Thompson-Barnes trio is already good, and there all very young. Give them time to improve their games and gel, and they can only get better.

    I guess stats aren't factual when rattled off?

    I think, yeah, Warriors GM Is probably better than us, but I am pretty sure I could out GM the Raptors GM.
