Here’s an article from the San Jose Mercury News on how the Golden State Warriors’ rookies are feeling about the NBA lockout. Klay Thompson was the Warriors’ first draft pick, of course, and this article includes some interesting quotes from Klay. Here’s the key excerpt that I thought CougCenter readers might find interesting: "Warriors rookie Klay Thompson, drafted No. 11 overall, crossed that bridge last week when his beloved Washington State Cougars took on rival Gonzaga. Watching from home, he said had he known the lockout would have come to this, ‘it probably would have affected my decision’ to leave college early."
