Klay Thompson, a prominent player for the Golden State Warriors, expressed frustration with his ability to witness crucial moments of games from the bench.

Thompson, expected to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, acknowledged the difficulty of transitioning from being one of the top players to a lower position.

Thompson was substituted by Moses Moody with 7 minutes and 19 seconds left in the game, remained on the bench for the remainder of the game.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr made the decision to have rookie Gui Santos play instead of Thompson in the final moments of the game.

Thompson's injuries and the challenges of aging have been a significant part of his season, but he possesses strong mental resilience.

Thompson's statistics have declined in the current season, with an average of 17.1 points per game, his lowest since his second season in the NBA.

Despite the challenges, Thompson expressed happiness for his youthful teammates, acknowledging the impressive performances of Kuminga and Podziemski.

Santos, a Brazilian rookie aged 21, was praised for his performance as "amazing" in Monday's victory.
