After the Lakers eliminated the Warriors in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals, Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson expressed optimism about the team’s future despite the tough loss.
“I fully believe that,” Thompson said when asked if he believes that the Warriors can still go all the way. “It stings real bad. It’s gonna sting all summer. The first time in a long time that Dray[mond Green], Steph [Curry] and I were healthy and not making the Finals. So it’s rare to be off during this time of year. But I can tell you we gave it everything we had. Just stings. But I believe that we have greatness in our future still.”
The Warriors, who were defending NBA champions, had a challenging season with multiple injuries and ultimately finished as the 6th seed in the West. Despite the loss, Thompson remained confident in the team’s potential for greatness.
Thompson’s statement comes as many fans and analysts have speculated about the future of the Warriors and whether they will make any significant changes to the roster. However, Thompson’s comments suggest that he and his teammates are committed to working hard and improving in the upcoming season.
As for the Lakers, they will move on to face the top-seeded Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals. The Nuggets have had a strong season, finishing with a 53-29 record during the regular season and defeating both the Timberwolves and the Suns in the playoffs so far.
