Klay Thompson doesn’t think Lebron James is the best player in the world. Yes, that’s true and as much as it might shock you this is not that big of a surprise. Klay Thompson, who plays for the Golden State Warriors, is not a huge fan of Lebron James and when the star took the podium after losing to the Warriors in Game 5, James said something that didn’t seat that well with Thompson.
After losing game 5 Lebron James, who play for the Cleveland Cavaliers took the podium for post game questions and when he was asked about their strategy as they approach game 6, James said that there is nothing to worry about since he is the best player in the world.
“I am feeling very confident about game six because simply I am the best player in the world,” Lebron James said. “It’s that simple.” There is no denying that James is arguably one of the best players to ever play in the NBA and his performance during this finals went on to cement his name as among the top players to ever play in the NBA. Despite losing Kyrie Irving as well as Kevin Love James managed to lift the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first ever-eastern conference championship win. In fact many had predicted that they would be swept off by the Warriors after it was apparent that Lebron would be the only star to feature for the Cavs against the Warriors. But his strong performance helped push the series to game 6 and despite all that, Thompson doesn’t seem to believe that James is the best player in the world.
