"So me, personally, I didn't think it was that bad, initially".
The Warriors star tore his ACL in Game 6 of the NBA Finals and will likely miss the majority of next season. So in many ways it will be a different Golden State team this coming season, when the five-time defending Western Conference champion begins playing its home games in the new Chase Center in San Francisco after moving from Oakland's Oracle Arena.
Thompson is now recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in the NBA Finals, and appears to be focused in his recovery.
"It's the pain of sports, but it's what keeps me motivated". Green has been one of the vital cogs of the Warriors' run to five straight NBA Finals, with the 35th pick in the 2012 draft elevating himself into an All-Star and helping the franchise become a modern dynasty.
The Warriors organization has not yet officially announced the extension, but Stephen Curry welcomed Green back, with a post on twitter.
"And we'll carve out a nice role for all of them", Thompson said.
While the Warriors should still be formidable if Thompson misses time, the West got a lot more hard in the offseason. His role in the playoffs was instrumental in getting us to the Finals.
Klay Thompson on those who say the Warriors' dynasty is over: "To say the dynasty is over is a little ignorant because I'm going to come back better and even more athletic". "But the expectations of how we play and that championship-caliber basketball, that's going to be for us always be the motivation and the challenge".
