Having a professional basketball player as a father has to be great, even more so when that can take you to know your idols. That’s the case of Klay Thompson, one of the best shooters in the history of the game, who had the privilege to know Michael Jordan when he was a kid.

Back in May, Thompson spoke to the media about the first time he met MJ when he was only a kid at a Portland Trail Blazers game in 1998. At that time, Klay and his family lived in Lake Oswego, Oregon, and his dad, two-time NBA champion Mychal Thompson was able to get the boys to meet Jordan and Scottie Pippen after the game

Footage has now surfaced about that moment, featuring Klay, Mychel and Trayce Thompson meeting the Hall of Famers for the first time.

Even at the time of meeting the GOAT himself, Klay looked calmed and undisturbed. Cold-blooded since he was a kid.
