The Golden State Warriors have made a truly incredible start to the 2015-16 NBA season, breaking records left and right as they stormed to their current 26-1 standing.
At the heart of that near-unbelievable run of form is the play of Stephen Curry, who has already managed to basically cement himself as Most Valuable Player after just 27 games of the season.
But the Warriors supporting cast certainly deserve an honorable mention, at the very least. And Klay Thompson has done much more than that, calling himself the best shooting guard in the entire league in a recent interview.

According to a report from Diamond Leung of Bay Area News Group, Thompson had a rather grandiose answer to a question.
"Asked to name the best player at each position in the NBA, Klay Thompson picked Warriors teammate Stephen Curry as the point guard and then paused," the report started off as saying.
“I’m going to go with myself,” Thompson revealed of his pick for the top shooting guard, throwing up his hands. “We’re 26-1."
An All-Star and All-NBA Third Team selection last season, Thompson isn't exactly embarrasing himself the claim. He is averaging 19.3 points per game on a career-best 47.3 percent shooting from the field and 43.7 percent from 3 this season.
However, there are two people called James Harden and Jimmy Butler who would absolutely diagree with him.
