Kurtenbach: Klay Thompson wants to live in the present. His Warriors future will be rooted in the past

Klay Thompson wants us to live in the present.

I think he’s living in the past.

But ultimately, we should expect him to be part of the Warriors’ future.

Following what was inarguably his worst performance as a professional basketball player in the Warriors’ season-ending, play-in tournament loss to the Kings — a game where Thompson’s defense was as poor as his offense (and he went 0-for-10 from the floor) — it was impossible to not wonder if the pending unrestricted free agent had played his last game for the Dubs.

He clearly had the same question, as he made a little show of spinning around as he walked off the court at Golden 1 Center Tuesday, taking it all in.

And yet Wednesday, when asked about his future to open his end-of-season press conference, he decided to put on another little show.

“We don’t want to talk about the season first?” Thompson said. “You want to talk about the future? There was a lot of games played, man. That was a pretty big accomplishment. What’s up with y’all not wanting to live in the present? It’s ridiculous.”

It was ridiculous, but only for Thompson.
