  • Published on Jan 9, 2019
  • Amin Elhassan, Chiney Ogwumike and Byron Scott of The Jump react to the Klay Thompson game in Warriors vs. Knicks in which he needed just 4 dribbles on shots to score 43 points. They then (2:01) answer some burning questions about Golden State big man DeMarcus Cousins, who is scheduled to return on Jan. 18 in Warriors vs. Clippers.

    I don't think enough people realize how utterly ridiculous this is. And keep in mind, he once got SIXTY and dribbled ELEVEN times in that game. Are we still arguing about Klay being the second-greatest shooter to ever touch an NBA basketball?

    43 shots with only 4 dribbles, here's how I see it.

    This brother got fed the ball a whole lot because his team is the best support system.
    I'm not too surprised with the 4 dribble part, it is possible, and he did prove it. Though you still need to be a pretty good sniper to make all those shots.
    I do think Klay is good but he might never be one of the Bigger Greats.
    Especially with Steph still on the team 😂

      Thank you, good sir for clearing up what it means to not show up. I was unsure for a moment and had a lapse on if Curry was a consistent piece on the Warriors basketball team.

    business is business, no one is immune, so when the players ask for better deals, they are called traitors, look at Mccaw of the Worriors, once he got injured they let him go, and i believe Clay and Draymond are not going to get their money from the Worriors
    sad but true

    This is why Klay is an All-Star while Draymond is the most overrated player of the century. There was one game (maybe the Blazers? Raptors? or Could've been the Rockets too. Anyway, there was one game were they loterally played g league level basketball. It was that bad. But he then turn it around. The Donkeystill playing like he doesn't even belong in the league.

    • Tzuyu
      Tzuyu 4 months ago +1

      +Alex Flood You clearly don't watch basketball, Klay is a better slasher than Robertson and a better FT shooter. You act like Klay only relies on his shooting. He has a decent ball handling.
      Have you seen 2016 series? No one is even guarding that bum Roberson, can't even shoot FT lol.
      If we use that argument, WB and Giannis won't even in the league if they don't have athleticism. Curry won't be in the league if he doesn't have shooting. See?
      There so many bums in the league but still have a contract

    • Alex Flood
      Alex Flood 4 months ago

      Klay can’t dribble & his handles are terrible therefore you can’t trust him with the ball on offence if he wasn’t a shooter, Robertson at least is good at both.
      Klay’s defence is good but Robertson is a better defender.
      Robertson is a good scorer when he gets to the glass (a lot like Brogden), Klay’s not & that’s why he relies on his shooting.
      That’s why I’m saying his ‘decent’ defence alone won’t get him into the NBA.

    • Tzuyu
      Tzuyu 4 months ago

      +Alex Flood Roberson is even in the league, you think Klay can't? Dude got no game aside from his defense lol.

    It means that the Warriors are a "Team First" group of stars who get it. It's about what Steve Kerr, who knows first hand, It's all about the rings, not your numbers, not your accolades, it's about team & team mate success. He has gotten these stars to buy in & they are reaping the benefits, maybe heading for a fourth shot in 5 years ?
