Thompson is celebrating his 33rd birthday on Wednesday and that’s as good a time as any to celebrate him.
Numerous fans have taken to Twitter and social media to talk about just how great Thompson is.
Throughout his time in the league, he has done many things including score 60 points in just 29 minutes, 52 points on a record 14 three-pointers, and 44 with 10 threes in a row.
When he is in the zone, there are few players like Thompson, who is officially known as one-half of the famous Splash Brothers.
Although he is sometimes considered part of a package deal with Stephen Curry, Thompson is definitely his own man and has a career that is impressive in its own right.
Thompson’s last year has been an interesting one.
He missed more than two season of play due to various injuries but finally re-entered the league last season.
It took him some time to find his rhythm again and he still struggles with inconsistency from time to time but Thompson has been feeling and looking good lately.
For the season, he is averaging 21.3 points, 4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists on 42.3% from the field and 40.5% from the three-point line.
His last game was a real barn-burner, as he posted 42 points and sank a wild 12 of his 16 three-point attempts.
That showed that even at 33 and even with the troubles he’s been through lately, Thompson is still a premier athlete and one of the most beloved in the NBA.NEXT: The Warriors Are Reportedly Open To Some Big Trades
