The news was devastating and shocked the world of NBA: Klay Thompson tore his Achilles tendon and will miss the 2020-21 season. The Golden State Warriors They received a direct blow to the heart because one of their stars said goodbye to the next campaign.
Although Warriors have already signed Thompson’s replacement, Klay’s absence will be felt because, in addition to being a fundamental piece in the last three NBA championships (2015, 2017 and 2018) of Golden State, he was also a member of what is classified as the best trio in NBA history alongside Draymond Green and Stephen Curry.
Ni Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman or Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili have better winning percentage than the Warriors trio who will not be present in the 2020-21 NBA season.
With the trio of Green, Curry and Thompson, the Golden State team accumulates a record of 365 wins and 113 losses for a .764 win percentage: the highest in history for three players with a minimum of 400 games. What we are going to miss in the 2020-21 NBA season!
