Golden State Warriors Basketball player Klay Thompson says he is the best NBA shooting guard in the league. Thompson, 25, was the Warriors’ 11th overall pick during the 2011 NBA draft and moved up to be a starter for the team by his second year.

Thompson even has his own signature sneaker that fans can buy in some Champs Sports stores in both the San Francisco Bay Area and in China. With his help, the team has been just about unbeatable and they began the season with a historic winning streak.

Thompson, best NBA shooting guard, has great stats for the season

Thompson, as well as two other shooting guards all have great stats for the 2015-16 season. The other two shooting guards are Houston’s James Harden and Chicago’s Jimmy Butler. However, Thompson still says he’s the best NBA shooting guard in the league.

Thomas has stats of 0.88 PPG, and the others, Harden has 28.5 PPG and Butler has 21.4 PPG, which means they all are scoring at a high mark for their careers.

Thompson said he wants to keep getting better in every game. He has averaged 19.5 points in a game, as well as 2.5 assists, and 3.5 rebounds.

Thompson is considered to be one of the best shooters in the NBA, but he says he isn’t the best shooter on his team. Curry leads the NBA with 131 three-pointers and Thompson says he is trying to catch up to that, as he is in third place with 80. If that happens, and he gets as good as Curry, experts say the team may never have to worry about losing ever again.

Thompson may not be considered the best NBA shooting guard in the league by some, but he is the second best scorer for the Warriors and the 6th best in the entire NBA, and the pair of him and Curry make a team that can’t be beaten very often.
