NBA free agency 2024: Warriors did the best they could after losing Klay Thompson, but was it the right path?

After all, it wouldn't have been the first time fans had to navigate rumors of Thompson going elsewhere, with the Los Angeles Lakers seeming like a perpetual threat to finally wrestle him loose and end the first real golden era of basketball in the broader Oakland/San Francisco area.

The Lakers reportedly tried to land the veteran All-Star who's widely regarded as the second-best shooter of all time.
