Thompson means a lot to the Warriors, not just as a player but as a positive presence in the locker room. He has embraced his role as a mentor to younger players, which will be invaluable to his young teammates and to Golden State’s future. His incredible dedication brought him back after being out for two full seasons.
The NBA world is ready to see Thompson in action again. Green, Curry, Kevin Durant and other players said they were thrilled to see him again.
Golden State is certainly happy to welcome him again. They are excelling on both sides of the ball and should only do better with another All-Star. Thompson’s timeless skill set will fit neatly into new Warriors he hasn’t yet played with. It will also be a seamless return to the game when he plays with teammates with whom he has generated extraordinary chemistry over the years.
