Anybody who's declared the Golden State Warriors dynasty over following the departure of two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant may want to reconsider.
Klay Thompson and Co. still believe there's plenty left in the tank.
"To say the dynasty is over is a little ignorant because I'm going to come back better and even more athletic," Thompson said during a recent interview (h/t House of Highlight's Chris Montano) "It would not be smart to count the Dubs out."
Thompson is expected to miss a large portion of the 2019-20 campaign after he tore his ACL in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals.
After Golden State's bid for a fourth championship in five years fell short, talk of the dynasty's collapse began, as it seemed likely Durant would leave in free agency this summer, which he did. However, the Warriors weren't having any of that pessimism.
