I remember when Mike Miller was a pure shooter as a young player at Florida. That seems like a different player than the ultimate warrior we see today who hustles after every loose ball and rebounds as if his career depended on that and not his perimeter jumper.
Thompson looks like the real deal as a shooter. To be more valuable going forward, and to help Golden State dig its way back to relevancy, he could do a lot by emulating Miller's ability to play with reckless abandon. It should not have any negative effect on his shooting and will only endear him more to his teammates.
