Marcus Thompson's post on Golden State Warriors | Latest updates on Sulia
#Warriors guard Klay Thompson played big in blowout win at #Rockets. Then he addressed James Harden trade rumors...
Does the fact that many fans hoped the Warriors traded you for Harden play into your matchup with him?
"I had no idea."
You didn't hear about Bill Simmons saying Warriors turned down a trade swapping you and Harden?
"I didn't know that. Even if I did, he can say what he wants. All I know is we've got a better record than them at this point. I seem to play well against him. So, yeah, it don't effect me. All I can control is what I do out there."
Does it motivate you to play well against him when people say they should trade you for him?
"I've got the same drive, no matter if I heard that stuff or if I didn't, to be the best player I can be."
