There has been plenty of talk, too, about Klay Thompson, who was 5-for-15 from the field and 1-for-6 from beyond the arc, tallying 11 points in the 112-108 loss.

Stephen A. goes on to explain how this reported gripe fits into the broader context of the looming free-agent market and drops some verrry big names…
