Programming note: Clippers-Warriors coverage starts Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. with Warriors Pregame Live on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
Through three games this season, Klay Thompson is leading the NBA at 29.7 points per game.
Head coach Steve Kerr places a great emphasis on ball and player movement, and Thompson is benefitting from the new philosophy.
On Monday, the 24-year old shooting guard, who signed a four-year, $70 million contract extension last Friday, joined Tom Tolbert and CSNBayArea.com Senior Insider Ray Ratto on KNBR-680 AM.
Thompson deflected a lot of the praise for his hot start to teammates, specifically Andrew Bogut.
"We're just scratching the surface of what we can be," Thompson declared. "Coach Kerr has really put an emphasis on moving the ball. We're without one of our best passing big men right now in David Lee.
When we get him back, he's gonna make us that more dangerous ... Andrew Bogut has been such a good player for us. I can't describe how good his passing is. He gets me so many good looks every night. I should give a percentage of my contract to him now..."
Thompson didn't just single out, Bogut, however.
"Guys like Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes, Andre Iguodala -- these guys find us. Andre is such a good passer, he's a point guard out there..."
Thompson isn't just scoring a lot. He's putting the ball in the bucket in a variety of ways, at an extremely efficient rate.
The Washington State product is is shooting just under 54 percent from the field, and is over 45 percent from deep.
He's also making over 91 percent of his free throws, and his 7.8 attempts per game are nearly quadruple the 2.1 per contest he averaged over his first three seasons in the league.
