Klay Thompson has already established himself on the NBA radar with his tremendous performance at the tail end of the regular season, but the rising sophomore has plenty left to show and a team framework that should provide for his future success.
During his cameo at the Las Vegas Summer League, Thompson showed off a scoring game that put him several classes above his peers; it's fairly blatant when a player is too good for Summer League competition, and despite being a relatively un-hyped second-year player, Thompson absolutely fit the bill.
That said: if we were relying on an April showcase and a Summer League performance alone, there may be reason to approach Thompson with a bit more skepticism. Yet with the way that the Warriors have fleshed out their roster over the last few months, they've both provided Thompson with a stable framework and allotted minutes to ensure he gets his due. Golden State has some talented wing players, but based on the way they've essentially built around the assumption of his playing time, it's likely that Thompson will step into a more functional team and provide more meaningful production this season.
Scoring is a big part of that, but what makes Thompson such a perfect offensive complement to Steph Curry is his ability to create off the dribble. Curry is a very talented player, but an inescapable hybrid of scoring and playmaking. Curry is simply at his best when he's able to access both parts of his game, and Thompson allows him to do just that. More playing time next season should result in an expanded opportunity to play off of Curry, and a chance to make a splash in the league-wide sense.
