The Golden State Warriors’ season came to a disappointing end, complete with a first-round playoff exit and the firing of head coach Mark Jackson. But this 51-win team still had a good year, so it’s time to take a look back on the 2013-14 season and evaluate how everyone performed. We’ve already taken a look at backup point guard Steve Blake, defensive anchor Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes‘ disappointing sophomore campaign, Jordan Crawford‘s disappointing production off the bench,Marreese Speight’s average year, Jermaine O’Neal‘s time as an elite backup center and Draymond Green‘s underrated season.
Today, we look at Klay Thompson, the subject of a ton of recent Kevin Love trade reports. The Golden State Warriors struck gold with the 11th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, selecting a young shooter out of Washington State who has grown into one of the now-famous Splash Brothers. Paired with All-NBA point guard Stephen Curry, Thompson has developed into a promising piece of one of the league’s best backcourts. Here’s a look back at his 2013-14 season.
