The NBA came out with its NBA 75 team, which named the best 75 players to ever play in the NBA. 

The full list of players that got named can be seen in a tweet that is embedded below from NBA Communications. 

Three-time NBA Champion Klay Thompson did not make the list, and on Thursday he commented on his Instagram story about being snubbed. 

The quote from his Instagram story can be seen in tweets embedded below from Hoop Central and ESPN's Sports Center. 

"Maybe I'm just naive in my ability to play basketball, but in my head, I'm top 75 all-time," Thomson said on his Instagram story. 

The shooting guard has spent his entire career as a member of the Golden State Warriors and had made five straight All-Star games prior to missing the last two seasons due to injury. 

He is also a career 19.5 points per game scorer, 41.9% shooter from the three-point range, and an unbelievable defender. 

There is a real case to made that he should have made the list.
