'I'd rather win championships': Klay Thompson doesn't make All-NBA Team

OAKLAND (KRON) — Golden State Warriors’ star Klay Thompson was a bit irritated Thursday when asked about not making the NBA All-Team. 

He rolled his eyes and said, “Oh I didn’t?” when learning he didn’t earn a spot on the team.

Regardless, he didn’t seem too disappointed.

“That’s cool and all — but when you go to five straight finals. I respect those guys but when you go to five straight, it takes more that just a couple NBA guys.”

His message was pretty clear.

“I’d rather win championships than be third team All NBA,” he said. ‘It’s all good.

He seemed to brush off the decision pretty quickly.

“It is what it is, I can’t control it. Do I think there are that many guards better than me in the league? No, but that’s the reason why we’re still playing,” Thompson said.
