Bob Myers told great Klay Thompson story at Warriors championship parade

Klay Thompson can be a bit aloof.

That led to my favorite moment of the Warriors’ championship parade yesterday: Golden State general manager Bob Myers telling a fantastic story about Thompson.

Myers:

There was a time a couple of years ago, I think, when Klay was in a slump. He was in a shooting slump, and I said maybe I’ll go over to Klay’s house and just talk to him and see what’s going on.

So, I went to his house, and he was sitting there, and I think Rocco was on his lap, and he was relaxing. And I said, “So what’s going on?” And he said, “I’m just not – I just wasn’t focused,” he said. “But I’m good now.” He said, “I’m locked back in.” He said, “Next game, you watch out because I’m ready to go.” And I said, “Alright, that’s great. Just got to get your focus back.” And he said, “Don’t worry. Don’t worry, Bob. I’m on it.”

And as I’m walking to the front door, he goes, “Hey.” I said, “What?” He said, “Hey, when do we play again?” And then I thought he was kidding. And then I said, “Tomorrow.” And then he said, “Who do we got?” And I said, “Klay, just – just keep shooting, I guess. I don’t know what to tell you.”

He’s the best.

Myers’ speech was excellent, and he provided insight into everyone on the roster. Watching it in full above is worth the time.
