Watch Klay Thompson knock down jump shots to delight of Warriors fans

Watch Klay Thompson knock down jump shots to delight of Warriors fans

Klay Thompson currently is rehabbing from the torn ACL he suffered in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals. But that doesn't mean he still can't get buckets.

The Warriors star guard has been enjoying his offseason, and he was back in the Bay on Wednesday at VMworld 2019. Thompson was hosting a fundraiser with Rubrik that involved contestants shooting free throws to benefit his foundation. Of course, if there's a hoop, people are going to want Klay to show off his world-renowned shooting stroke, no matter how many legs he's standing on. 

Thompson is no stranger to performing under pressure, so he stepped back to around 3-point range and knocked them down.

Where's Mike Breen with the "Bang!" call when you need him?

And hey, Klay even showed a little hop in there. It looks like rehab is coming along well, but Thompson still is expected to be out until February or March. In his absence, the new-look Warriors will be tasked with staying afloat in the brutal Western Conference.

Once Thompson returns, expect the three-time NBA champion to look to prove he and the Warriors still are a force to be reckoned with. (And since that stroke isn't changing, they will be.)

Warriors coach very impressed with Eric Paschall in one specific area

Warriors coach very impressed with Eric Paschall in one specific area

Considering what the expectations were, Eric Paschall has been nothing short of fantastic so far this season.

The rookie is averaging 15.6 points and 4.4 rebounds per game, while shooting just under 53 percent from the field.

“His work ethic has been impressive from the jump,” Warriors assistant coach Theo Robertson -- who works closely with Paschall -- told Ethan Strauss of The Athletic. “His goal this season was to get on the floor and to this point he’s done everything necessary to facilitate that.

"We spend a ton of time watching film. I’ve been very impressed by his IQ. He’s been well-coached and sees the game.

"Moreover, his ability to apply concepts or teaching points immediately has been very impressive. He can execute a game plan and really understands the ‘why’ in a lot of things.”

Paschall -- who turned 23 years old last week -- spent five years in college, and greatly benefitted by playing for Villanova coach Jay Wright.

He constantly communicates on the defensive end and knows where to be.

As Strauss writes:

Synergy Sports grades Paschall out as “very good” on defense so far, which is tough to do on a Warriors team that’s putting up historically bad defensive efficiency numbers.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter if Paschall starts or comes off the bench. He's going to play around 30 minutes per night.

But moving forward, hopefully we will get to see Paschall share the floor as much as possible with Draymond Green. Those two need to learn each other's tendencies and develop chemistry on both ends of the floor, and that can't happen when the rookie checks into the game for the three-time All-Star.
