KLAY THOMPSON On SLAM MAG!!!




GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS Guard #11 KLAY THOMPSON is the cover story for the new issue of  SLAM Magazine!!!


Here are some interview interludes:

On his days as a SKATEBOARDER:


“I wouldn’t say I’m nasty, but I’m probably the best NBA player on a skateboard.I’m contractually obligated not to skate anymore, but I’ll go out on a limb and say I’ve probably still got it.”
Thompson was drafted 11th overall in 2011, the year of the NBA lockout. During the six months between the Draft and the end of the lockout, Thompson spent a lot of time working on his game. Still, he had free time on his hands, and his high school friends would be back at Ladera skating, so…
“I was skating a lot back then. I hadn’t signed a contract yet, and looking back it wasn’t smart, but it was a lot of fun.”
On SURFING:
“I’m definitely not good—I’m not going to lie. But I’ll go after it when I retire.”
On his dog ROCCO:
“He’s like a therapy dog for me. He’s great to have through the ups and downs during the season. He loves me unconditionally.”
On not constantly needing be the center of media attention:
“My parents taught me to be confident, but humble.”
