Because of the season they are having, many people aren’t talking about the sheer ability and impact of Golden State Warriors duo Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
This pairing, famously dubbed the Splash Brothers, is one of the best partnerships in the history of the NBA.
True, the Warriors are currently in the midst of a bad season but that doesn’t take away from all the Splash Brothers have done.
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson:

Curry and Thompson still hold the record for the most three-pointers in a season by a duo, with 678.
Beyond that, they also claimed the most three-pointers in a playoff season by a duo (178) and the most three-pointers in a career Finals by a duo (148).
These two players are professors when it comes to three-pointers and the entire NBA is their classroom.
Again and again, Curry and Thompson have put on a clinic and shut down the defense of even the best teams.
When they get hot together, it’s seemingly impossible to cool them off or slow them down.
This has created some of the most explosive and exciting backcourts in the history of the league.
The three-point output from Curry and Thompson has not only influenced other players in the league, but has also brought basketball to millions of fans who were engrossed by the entertaining work of these two.
The 2022-23 season has been a tough one for the Warriors.
They have needed much more than fun three-pointers from Curry and Thompson.
It has taken him some time but Thompson is looking like his old self again.
Sadly, he is currently without his close friend and teammate as Curry is still sitting out due to an injury.NEXT: NBA Analyst Predicts The Fate Of The Warriors
