Klay Thompson‘s season took an unexpected turn. Despite shining at times during the playoffs and in the early stages of the series against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, his performance faltered in the last four games.

In those games, he only managed an average of 10.5 points while shooting a dismal 25% from the floor. The low point came in Game 6, where he struggled with a disastrous 3-19 shooting, contributing to their loss.

“I think the biggest thing for Klay is to have a great offseason. At 33 and with two major injuries behind him, this is a time where he’s gotta be more prepared than ever for the first day of training camp. Not only physically, handling the injuries…but also understanding that as you get older you’ve got to get better at areas you can improve. You can’t rely on the same things you could rely on at 28 or 27 so there are areas where he can get better and he’s gonna focus on those things this summer and come in and have a great year next year.”

He endured a complete absence from the game in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons and only managed to participate in 32 games during the 2021-22 season. However, this season saw a positive shift as he took the court for 69 games, the most in four years. While there were moments when he seemed far from his peak form, it became evident that he gradually started to resemble the exceptional player he once was as the season progressed.
