Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson is still coming to terms with the fact that he will be playing alongside Kevin Durant in 2016-17.

In a team already boasting Thompson, reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, the Warriors will have even more firepower next season after seven-time All-Star Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder in favour of Bay Area as a free agent.

The switch was made official earlier in July but as Team USA prepare for next month’s Olympic Games, Thompson cannot believe Durant is his Warriors team-mate.

“For a guy who has had so much success in his career and is so young, he doesn’t walk around like he’s better than anyone else. That is what makes him so likeable and so easy to play with,” Thompson said after Team USA practice on Tuesday.

“It’s like getting a head start on our relationship which is great for me, Draymond and him.

“It still shocks me that he’s on our team. It’s unbelievable.

“I can’t wait to play with him Friday night. It’s going to be a great preview of what is to come.”
