Warriors' Klay Thompson Sounds Like He's Recovering Tremendously From ACL Surgery

Golden State Warriors All-Star Klay Thompson hopes to beat the odds during his recovery from a torn ACL.

He suffered the devastating injury during Game 6 of NBA Finals, which the Warriors eventually lost on their home court, but that won't hold Thompson back from returning to the court as soon as possible.

His recovery process is already going incredibly well ever since he underwent surgery and he aims to be back around the All-Star break.

Did we expect anything else? Let's not forget, in Kobe Bryant fashion after he suffered the injury, Thompson took his two free throws before exiting the game and even tried to convince Steve Kerr to let him back on the court.

Once the injury was certain, the expectation was Thompson would miss the entire 2019-20 season. The Warriors even added D'Angelo Russell to replace the firepower lost due to Thompson's injury and Kevin Durant's departure to Brooklyn.

With Thompson physically on the mend and clearly mentally focused on returning to help the Warriors as soon as possible, don't be surprised if we see the other splash brother draining threes sooner than we expected.
