Klay Thompson wants the 'Splash Bros' to be 'greatest backcourt to ever play'
By JESSICA KLEINSCHMIDT
When you were in the Bay Area this 2015 NBA season, you were introduced to your fair share of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Even if you weren't sporting that 925 area code, you caught the fever of the Splash Brothers.
With Golden State Warriors winning the NBA Championship this season they chalked it full of Marshawn Lynch celebrations and falling in love with baby Riley Curry. Don't expect that electricity to conclude however. Thompson recently spoke to Muho.tv and CSN Bay Area reported he expects to be the best along with his partner in crime Steph Curry.
"Our goal is to one day be the greatest backcourt to ever play," Klay told Muho.tv earlier this month. "We still got a lot of work to do but I think we can get there."
Let's remember that Curry is only 27 years-old, which Thompson has only spent a quarter of a century here on this earth, but that didn't stop them from averaging a combined 45.5 points per game last season.
CSN Bay Area reported the next closest to that was Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozaon at 37.9 ppg.
The confidence they just obtained in 2015 can only help them. The two put Warriors on the map and added a bigger notch in the bandwagon belt loop.
"It's cool to play with a guy like Steph," Klay said. "I've never been on a team with somebody who shoots it better than me. So it makes me hungrier. I'm competitive. I want to get to his level, so it makes me work hard every day and I see how hard he works and it rubs off on everybody."
The Warriors open up their 2016 season against the New Orleans Pelicans Tuesday October 20.
