    No question mark. I slept on it for a night to make sure.

    He's in.

    Remember how Reggie Miller would take seven mini steps to get his feet planted?
    Klay Thompson's footwork is perfect every time.

    That shot he made to put them ahead? Off the long pass off the quick turnover? Absolute thing of beauty that seemed to completely defy all laws of physics.

    Yep. And there's also that little matter of defense, at which Thompson is superb, but Miller rather awful.

    Thompson often seems to get compared to Reggie Miller, but I think it quite a flawed comparison. The only thing Reggie was better at was being famous and attracting media attention. Thompson is the far better all around player.

    How about Draymond Green? Dude was second team all-league and has been trash in this series. Klay at least kept the season alive in Game 6.

    Curry and Thompson are the two best NBA shooters of all time. They have revolutionized the game.

    If the Warriors do make their push for Durant and succeed, consider that Thompson will be the guy you leave open and hope for the best.

    I'll take Larry Bird in best shooters of all time.

    If Thompson is in, Kyle Korver should have his own wing.
