After being cleared for contact training this month, Warriors great, Klay Thompson is already eyeing the NBA trophy this season.
The Dubs are on a great run with 15-2 in the new season and have already showed potential of winning the trophy with the likes Stephen Curry being in red hot form.
In quotes carried by NBA.com, Thompson expressed gratitude of returning to training before stating his ambition for the season.
He said: “It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am to be playing basketball again,” Thompson said after practicing at full speed Tuesday. “I feel like myself. I feel great. I’m knocking shots down, I’m playing great D … I’m playing defense. The hardest part is just simulating a game and that conditioning that goes with being a great NBA player. It’s hard, and it’s definitely a thing that takes time.”
On the potential of the team winning the NBA, Thompson indicated:
“it’s championship or bust” for the 15-2 Warriors.
“And I’m not even out there yet, think about that, really think about that,” he said, emphatically putting his left hand to the podium to make his point. “I’m more motivated than ever as well. I want a championship so bad, more than anything.”
