    when people got really really sensitive. And the internet allows every random fan to voice their opinions on multiple forums. IMO, alot of times people dont even know where they get their information or ideas since their is so much information and opinions out there. I dont even think people wholly form their own opinions anymore.

    Klay will make more money as a warrior, hes not giving anything up. Hes making $80million off a shoe deal. He wouldnt get contracts like that on another team

    This is whats making things even more unfair

    It may be that not every person ties their self worth up with their bank account, and maybe $300M is enough money.
    MacLean's Law: Everywhere you go there will be a jerk. Corrolary: If you go somewhere by yourself you become a jerk.

    I don't care where anyone chooses to go in free agency. I really don't. Yes, KD "broke" the NBA for a year or two, but I can't blame him for going to the team that fit what he wanted.

    The worst part about the Warriors winning is that now I can't have an opinion without being a "homer" or a "hater". It used to be that dialogue had merit independent of accusations.

    I got mine from when the ARod to the Red Sox deal was rejected because he reworked the deal for slightly lower money and the MLBPA got mad that he was taking less than he earned.

    exactly. no other team in the league can offer him a better role on the court.

    thanks for clearing that up.... I think it came around the same time the word masculine developed a negative connotation

    Is Thompson really worth a max contract? I don't think so. He's probably the 4th best player on this team behind Durant, Curry and Green. Green may not be the shooter that Thompson is, but he does a lot more to help this team win games. We're talking $35M a year for a guy that nearly exclusively camps out behind the 3 point line? If he goes to another team, he's not going to be a first option. For a guard, you don't give max money to a player like that. For bigs, yes, because they're rebounding and protecting the rim also. What does Thompson really do well? Catch and shoot. He also plays a little defense. People talk about him being this tremendous, lock down defender, but I think he's a overrated defender. How many NBA Defensive teams has he made? ZERO. Not even a second team. It seems only Thompson fans seem to think he's a "great" defender. I think he's a good defender and borderline "very good" but thats about it.

    Go ahead and list your top 10 players in the league and I highly doubt Thompson makes it. Make your top 20 and Thompson may or may not be on it. He's not on mine.

    At worst hes very good. Id say great just because his versatility is sick, allows us to switch easily which is our main strength on defense

    Already explained how I was consistent in valuing worthy. Tho even with him, he was at one point at least his team's second best player behind magic. Klay is even further down that pecking order in terms of importance.

    McHale had an mvp caliber year and again the team's co star but even Larry bird would tell you he underachieved. Klay took that 2 levels further.

    Don't get me wrong. Thompson fits into this system like a glove and he's excelling. He's a necessity for what the Warriors are running. I think he knows that. He knows that he's in the right situation to be a good player for a long time. He doesn't strike me as a guy that doesn't know who he is.

    Nothing wrong with putting winning and the strength of the team over personal achievement. Its odd how so many fans here attack a player for having this mindset..... LOL it should be viewed as a positive trait shouldn't it??

    With all this tanking going on, people have developed loser mentalities.

    You and I can relate to this right? Lol

    I actually dont think thats why people are attacking klay for this. I think most people honestly do believe its a breath of fresh air- but those people want the warriors broken apart so bad, they dont appreciate any decision anybody makes that leads to the warriors staying together or perhaps even adding more talent
