Klay Thompson is well-known for his shooting ability off the court, and he comprises half of the Splash Brothers, along with Stephen Curry. Off the court, he is well-known for his fun-loving and relaxed personality.
Recently, the Warriors shooting guard was spotted at a Giants-Dodgers baseball game. Some cameras caught him chugging an entire beer while looking at his phone. The video ended up going viral, and the announcer hilariously said that "nobody enjoys life the way that Klay Thompson does".
There is no doubt that a good number of people like to partake in drinking from time to time at events, and Klay Thompson is no different. While the local San Francisco Giants ended up losing to Los Angeles Dodgers, the game was still fun to watch.
Klay Thompson has had a very good year with the Golden State Warriors, averaging 20.4 PPG, 3.9 RPG, and 2.8 APG. That is particularly remarkable as he's managed to bounce back relatively well from two devastating injuries. Klay Thompson's father, Mychal, has recently suggested that the shooting guard could be even better next season.
“I thought he was fine last year, you guys overlooked his defense,” Mychal Thompson said of his son on 95.7 The Game’s Willard & Dibs. “The defense he was playing in the Finals, that’s the part I was most concerned about, will he be able to slide his feet defensively and stay in front of guys the way he did in the past? And he did that. He played great defense against two of the best scorers in the league against [Jaylen] Brown and [Jayson] Tatum, so if you can defend those two guys, stay in front of those two guys, you’re fine.
"So yeah, Klay’s going to be even better next year because he will have an offseason to train and [he’s] further away from his injury, so he’s going to be just fine.”
It remains to be seen if that prediction from Thompson's father comes to pass. Generally, players do end up playing better the further away they are from their injuries.
If Klay Thompson does end up playing better next season, that only means good things for the Golden State Warriors. They have a good chance of winning another title next season, and we'll see if they're able to do so.
