Stephen Curry reacted to the critics that say the season of the Golden State Warriors will be ‘a wash’, after Klay Thompson’s serious injury.

Curry said the Warriors are in a position to ‘compete with anyone in the league’ and are also capable of beating anyone.

“We know we can compete with anyone in the league. It’s kind of crazy. We know how great Klay is. Don’t get me wrong. But we hear the chatter.

‘It’s the end of for us. This year is a wash. What are we going to do in the future?’ But we are in the moment right now. It’s kind of refreshing being in that category as guys that are chasing.

We know [the Los Angeles Lakers] are the defending champs. We got to beat them. We’re ready for it,” Curry said, via Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.

For his part, Thompson suffered a season-ending Achilles injury on his right leg last week.
