Klay Thompson is averaging 19.3 points per game on 47.3 percent shooting from the field and is tied for second in 3-pointers made this season with 80.
This past weekend he unveiled his first signature sneaker and participated in a Q&A in which he was asked who thinks is the best shooting guard in the league.
The always-confident Thompson picked himself and pointed at the Warriors 26-1 record as proof. Via Bay Area News Group:
Asked to name the best player at each position in the NBA, Klay Thompson picked Warriors teammate Stephen Curry as the point guard and then paused.
“I’m going to go with myself,” Thompson said of his pick for the top shooting guard, throwing up his hands. “We’re 26-1.”
He noted that the Chicago Bulls’ Jimmy Butler and Houston Rockets’ James Harden were among the candidates in his mind before reiterating his choice.
“I have confidence in myself,” Thompson said Saturday.
