According to Jason Terry, not only is Klay Thompson not the NBA’s top shooting guard, but he’s also a mere B-List star.

Terry gives the nod to former teammate James Harden.

Terry claims that Thompson—a two-way stud—is rendered ineffective if his jumper isn’t falling.

Per SiriusXM NBA Radio (via Def Pen):

“He’s not leading s***,” Terry said of Klay Thompson. “If he doesn’t make shots, how effective is he? Go watch Klay Thompson vs. James Harden from last year and see what James did to him. Every time James got by him, you know who was there? Draymond Green or Andrew Bogut.

 

“Let’s see what happens this time around”.

 

Terry confidently believes his former teammate in Houston, James Harden, is the league’s best shooting guard. He favors Harden due to his all-around game, and clarified that Klay Thompson is still a good player despite not being at Harden’s level. […] “I’m not a Klay Thompson hater”, Terry clarified, praising his shooting and his family. “It’s just when you put him up against James Harden, there’s no comparison.”
