All-Star Thompson willing to stay with Warriors for long time
WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 -- All-Star guard Klay Thompson has made it clear that he would like to stay with the Golden State Warriors for a long time, local media reported on Thursday.
In Thompson's eyes, the team, which have won back-to-back titles in the past two seasons and three trophies out of past four years, have what it takes to win more glories in future.
"It's awesome. Makes you want to win more. Makes you want to make the most of it. It's crazy because we are back-to-back champs, but at the same time I feel like we're all relatively young and we can still get to another level and keep winning. Not just this year, but years beyond," Thompson was quoted as saying by the ESPN after Thursday's practice.
"Not a lot of guys can do that with their team. So I love coming to work every day because I realize this is a special group and a special time to be a Warrior," he added.
The 28-year-old will become free agent after the season, and he made it clear that he wants to be with the Warriors as long as he can. "It's hard to walk away from something. You were here when it started and you just want to stay on the train as long as you can," Thompson said.
