Klay Thompson reacts to being snubbed from the NBA 75 Team
One would think winning 3x NBA Championships, being one of the greatest shooters all-time, and holding numerous NBA records means a sure spot on the NBA 75 roster. However, that isn’t the case, as the NBA snubbed Klay Thompson on their list.
Klay was not pleased with the snub. He took it to his Instagram and posted,
“Maybe I’m just naive in my ability to play basketball, but in my head, I’m top 75 all-time.”

Klay Thompson would use this as fuel and surely would have a chip on his shoulder when he returns. The Warriors fans know it, and can’t wait for him to return.
