ESPN's Stephen A. Smith called out Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson on Saturday during a mid-day NBA Countdown segment, yell-talking his way through a take that essentially amounted to "Klay has been bad."
"If Klay Thompson doesn’t show up, that does not help the Golden State Warriors," Smith said. "Think about this, Jordan Poole and Steph Curry are averaging 25.5 points a game. Klay Thompson is at 13.5 points. Klay Thompson is shooting 29 percent from the field and 22 percent from three point range. This is one of the greatest shooters in the history of basketball, a three-time champion that can’t find the basket.
