Marreese Speights was a fan favorite during his stint with the Warriors’ uniform. Speights was known as a stretch four in the NBA, possessing a consistent mid-range and 3-point shot that forced defenses to extend.

Despite being nowhere near the ‘Splash Brothers’ as far as shooting ability goes, Speights claimed he almost took down Klay Thompson in a shooting contest.

“I almost got close to beating Klay one time,” Speights said on Warriors Outsiders. “Those guys is by far way on top of everybody. But after that, after those two guys, it’s free game after that.”
