Klay Thompson refutes his dad's prediction that Lakers will end Warriors' streak

Standing in the way of the 15-0 Golden State Warriors making history and becoming the first NBA team to start a season with 16 consecutive victories: the 2-11 Los Angeles Lakers.

It sounds like a cruel joke. Really? This is the team that's supposed to keep the Warriors from the all-time record?

But before you laugh too hard, listen to what Mychal Thompson, father of Klay Thompson and the Lakers' radio color commentator, has to say about what he views as a potential trap game, via Sporting News:

Mychal Thompson is also a former Laker, so there's some bias there besides just his corporate ties, but he makes an interesting point: What if the Warriors take the Lakers too lightly? Could L.A. catch them off guard? Is that even possible?

Well, not if you ask Klay Thompson. He responded on KNBR's Fitz and Brooks show, claiming that his father is just saying that because he works for the Lakers:

The Warriors have taken teams lightly lately, but when they flip the proverbial switch -- and play their small-ball death lineup of Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes, Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry -- they destroy opponents.

The Lakers -- 17- to 17.5-point underdogs -- will have their work cut out for them.
