Warriors’ Thompson Pleased with Defense Help
Klay Thompson is relieved.
He was bracing for another grueling season, playing big minutes and being Golden State’s version of a defensive stopper.
But the Warriors went out and got swingman Andre Iguodala, a known defensive talent. And they added veteran back-up Toney Douglas. Now Thompson has considerable help.
“Going up against the best every night, it’s fun,” Thompson said after Wednesday’s workouts at the team facility. “But now I can focus on exerting just as much energy on the offensive end. … We’ve got so much balance and we’re so deep, you can really play your hardest and get a blow.”
