Klay Thompson stepped onto the national scene with one insane half of basketball in the Golden State Warriors’ 2013 playoff run. Scoring 29 points in less than 24 minutes, Thompson was dropping treys like it was going out of style and the nation took notice.

Thompson’s smooth shooting stroke is what got him drafted 11th overall by the Warriors in 2011, and once Monta Ellis was moved to the Milwaukee Bucks, Thompson was allowed to flourish in a starters’ role.

Although his decision-making is questionable at times, Thompson has the potential to be the best shooter in the league, and the most dangerous aspect may be that he knows it.
