Klay Thompson Says He and Stephen Curry are the Best Shooting Duo Ever

In 2013, Mark Jackson called his backcourt duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson as the greatest in NBA history.

Thompson, at a recent sneaker promo event in China, agreed with the former Golden State Warriors bench boss.

The 25-year-old All-Star points to the fact that the Splash Bros led the League in three-pointers made last season—Curry is also a career 44 percent shooter from beyond the arc; Klay has connected on 41.8 percent of his bombs—and are coming off a championship triumph.

Per Sina (via CBS Sports):

Speaking with a reporter in China at an event to promote his new Anta sneaker, Thompson confidently answered a question regarding the Splash Brothers being the “best shooting duo” of all-time.

 

“I agree, I think so,” Thompson said. “You know, Steph is one of the best to ever play. I think I’m right there by him. We both led the NBA in 3s, we were No. 1 and 2. I don’t know if that has ever happened on the same team.

 

“I think we are the best shooting backcourt, maybe of all-time. We still got a lot to prove and I still think we are just scratching the surface of what we can be.”
