Klay Thompson Explains Why He Isn't "Sacrificing Shit" for Kevin Durant

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

It sounds crazy and I'm sure we’ll spend all summer breaking down his words, but what exactly was Klay Thompson supposed to say?

He’s an All-Star, one of the best shooters and two-guards in the world, but yet every topic surrounding him since Kevin Durant chose the Warriors has been about Thompson possibly having to “scale back” his game, or as the pundits like to put it, “sacrifice” touches for the betterment of the team.

Thompson told The Vertical that he wasn’t “sacrificing shit" for KD. 

“I feel kind of disrespected that people keep using the term sacrifice to describe me and describe us. We all want to see each other do well. But I’m not sacrificing [expletive], because my game isn’t changing. I’m still going to try to get buckets, hit shots, come off screens. I want to win and have a fun time every game we play.

“The NBA season can get mundane; 82 games are so long and there can be some boredom. Now, we can embrace being the hated team and getting everyone’s best, and adding some tension every night. It’ll be a fun experience going into arenas on the road, with opposing fans hating what we’ve built.”

Thompson went on to say that he initially didn’t believe the news that Durant had signed with the Warriors. 

“I was sleeping, and my brother came to my room and woke me up to tell me that KD committed. I didn’t believe it at first when he told me, so I had to check my phone and verify it. I was like, ‘Seriously? KD really chose us?’ It was an incredible moment for our organization, and I was psyched. We had the final form of our team.

“And then I went back to sleep.”
