1. Klay Thompson - 41.3%

Undoubtedly the most intriguing name on this list, it would have once been unthinkable for Klay Thompson to finish out his career anywhere other than The Bay. But after the events of the last five years, we are potentially just a few weeks away from that becoming a reality. One half of the legendary "Splash Brothers," Klay and Stephen Curry became known as the greatest shooting backcourt of all-time in the 2010's.

But following some devastating injuries, Thompson does not look exactly like the player he once was. Make no mistake about it, he is still one of the better perimeter shooters in the association. But back-to-back Achilles and ACL injuries will have some significant effects on any professional athlete. Missing the entire 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons was a major shift in Klay's career, and he has been adjusting ever since his return in January 2022.

We can call it what it is: Steph Curry, at his best, is probably still somewhere in the range of a top-five player on earth. But at age 36, he is not getting any better. If Klay is open to signing elsewhere and writing his own chapter to finish his career, what better fit than with the possible best player of the next generation?
