  Thompson Shocked When Told Of All-NBA Snub – Klay Thompson found out he hadn’t been selected to an All-NBA team while he was being interviewed by reporters Thursday, and the shock on the face of the Golden State Warriors‘ normally unflappable swingman told the story. In addition to the sting of the snub, Thompson will not be eligible this summer to sign a five-year supermax contract worth $221 million. He will instead be eligible for a five-year max deal worth $191 million with the Warriors once he becomes a free agent on July 1. “I didn’t? It already came out?” Thompson said after Thursday’s practice, before being told that he just missed being selected for the third team. “I mean, that’s cool and all, but like when you go to five straight Finals — I respect those guys, but when you go to five straight, it takes more than just a couple All-NBA guys. It’s like an all-time team, but whatever. I’d rather win a championship than be third-team All-NBA, so it’s all good.” Both Thompson and the Warriors have said throughout the season that they were hopeful about getting a new deal done after the season. Warriors owner Joe Lacob recently told ESPN that he hoped Thompson and Warriors guard Stephen Curry be with the organization “forever.”  Check out Klay Thompson video:
