Clay Thompson, you can’t be the best guard anymore

Clay Thompson, you can’t be the best guard anymore

Clay Thompson

Charles Barkley delivered a vitriol on slumping Clay Thompson (Golden State).

“Thamson is still a good player,” Barkley said in an interview with local media ‘Bleacherport’ on the 30th (Korea Standard Time). But you’ll never be able to go back to being the best guard. “I had a big Achilles tendon injury and now I’m too old,” he said, evaluating Thompson.

As Barkley said, Thompson’s 2022-2023 season is not good. Thompson has an average of 17 points and 3.6 rebounds in 18 games, and his 40% fieldwork success rate is the lowest in his career. However, Thomson has shown signs of a resurgence, averaging 20.8 points and 50.6 percent in his last six games.

Thomson, who was nominated by the Golden State Warriors as the 11th overall NBA draft pick in 2011, is a one-club man and franchise star who played only in Golden State for 12 years. It is a legend who won five All-Star awards and four NBA championships in Golden State. This is why Golden State fans do not hate Thompson even if he has been sluggish recently.

Thompson returned after 941 days during the 2021-2022 season and wrote a drama that reached the top of the NBA again with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green. Watching Thomson’s comeback was one of the best things to see last season.

Many fans will support Thompson, who is in the twilight of his career, and Thompson, the main character of human victory. Can Thomson write another twist story, reversing Barkley’s evaluation?
