Stephen A. Smith had nothing but good words to say about the superstar duo of the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

The NBA analyst called Curry and Thompson the ‘greatest shooting backcourt’ in NBA history.

“For a simple reason, it doesn’t need to be complicated, like some people might try to make it, they have the greatest shooting backcourt known to man.

There has never been anybody, a backcourt in NBA history, that can shoot like these brothers, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson,” Smith said on First Take, via Alex Didion of NBC Sports.

Smith also said the Warriors, who had the worst record last season (15-50), will be the biggest threat to the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers next season.
