ANNOYED by talk of the adjustments the Warriors need to do for the next season, Klay Thompson stressed that he’s not changing his game just because of the arrival of Kevin Durant to the Warriors camp.
"I feel kind of disrespected that people keep using the term 'sacrifice' to describe me and describe us," Thompson said on The Vertical .
"We all want to see each other do well. But I'm not sacrificing [$X! Γ], because my game isn't changing. I'm still going to try to get buckets, hit shots, come off screens. I want to win and have a fun time every game we play."
The longtime backcourt partner of twice MVP Stephen Curry also insisted he is embracing the hate and relishing the thought of bringing into rivals’ arenas the super team they just built.
"The NBA season can get mundane; 82 games are so long and there can be some boredom. Now, we can embrace being the hated team and getting everyone's best, and adding some tension every night. It'll be a fun experience going into arenas on the road, with opposing fans hating what we've built."
Thompson and Durant are both members of Team USA in the Rio Olympics, along with controversial teammate Draymond Greeen and former Warrior Harrison Barnes.
