He was the rookie of the year and we traded him next year. i never got over it. We finally had the PF we were dying for and we traded him. Most analyst say that if the previous draft where to happen again right now Klay would be top five eyes closed. They also say that if Klay was starting from day one he would be in the top 3 for rookie of the year. So what do you all propose? That the best thing a team can do when they're rookie goes well on his 1st year is to trade his ass for a proven veteran because at the time he plays better. And those idiots in Oklahoma are sitting there trying to develop Westbrook and Durant instead of trading them in their second year after they showed potential and got trade value in the first year. And they are not the only one making such foolish decisions. Bunch of idiot's, we will show them. We will trade all our rookies because developing talent takes time, and has risks, so the whole draft thing is unnecessary. It has to be stooped. Let's be like Europe where there are only free agents and the teams with no money develop young players and the rich teams wait until they are ready to take them.
To clarify: I'm not advocating that we trade Klay Thompson just for the sake of trading him.
But if another team wants to give us their #1 player for our #4 player, I would look at it. And there's something to be said for sustainability and consistency as opposed to potential and flashy production in limited games. I really, really like Klay Thompson. But I LOVE Andre Iguodala and the idea of having him alongside our big 3.
3 years ago, Stephen Curry, David Lee, Andrew Bogut, and Andre Iguodala were the best players in 4 different cities. I don't wanna trade Klay Thompson for garbage. Thing is, I don't think Iggy is garbage. Not by a long shot.
