Is winning good? Of course it is. Is winning better when you're the one who's contributing the most to it? Absolutely.
Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson is currently one of the NBA's premier players. He's a top-five shooter who makes a difference when he's on the floor, and you can't argue with three rings. The experience he has gained in Golden State is truly invaluable and can't be taken away.
However, an important question that Thompson will eventually need to ask himself is this: how much longer can he tolerate being the third -- or even fourth -- fiddle on this team?
You shouldn't have to
ICYMI: I chatted with @KlayThompson before his private gathering for the @ThompsonFamFoun about his pending free agency, if he would take an extension and his goals for the 2018-19 season. Klay's main message: "I would like to be a Warrior for life." https://t.co/i5EDT5qKmR pic.twitter.com/qynTdfhlAs— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) August 20, 2018
