Klay Responds to Aldridge: Warriors ‘had a Better Case' for Four All-Stars

The Warriors are sending four players -- Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson -- to the All-Star Game.

The Spurs will have one represntative -- Kawhi Leonard.

San Antonio forward LaMarcus Aldridge believes "it was wrong" for Golden State to have four selections to the Spurs' one.

"I think he had a case to make it, especially when you have the record they have," Klay Thompson told FS1's Jason Whitlock on Tuesday. "But, I think we had a better case to have four because of our record -- we're still in the single-digit loss column, coming up on the All-Star break -- which is pretty hard to do."

Aldridge is averaging 17.4 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. Over his last six contests, he's registering 15.5 points on 34.7 percent shooting.

The 31-year old was an All-Star each of the previous five seasons.

The Western Conference coaches selected the seven reserves -- Klay, Draymond, DeAndre Jordan, Marc Gasol, Gordon Hayward, DeMarcus Cousins and Russell Westbrook.

"I can't help it -- I'm not gonna argue with it," Klay added. "I'm happy to go with my teammates and my coaching staff. It's gonna be a lot of fun.

"I never thought I'd be on an NBA team with four All-Stars, one being myself. It's pretty surreal and hopefully it won't be the last time."

The Warriors lead the Spurs by four games for the top spot in the West.
