In-game interviews are both an interesting layer of texture that adds depth to a TV broadcast and perhaps a distracting commitment for those playing or coaching in an NBA game.
So I guess we shouldn’t be surprised when things like this happen.
As the Golden State Warriors took on the Sacramento Kings on Friday night, Klay Thompson was pulled aside for an in-game interview with our friends over at NBC Sports Bay Area. Thompson was asked a question by Kerith Burke about ball movement leading to 3-pointers. Thompson was apparently in need of some sports drink because his answer was a little loopy.
Here’s what Thompson said in response to Burke:
“It’s great on both si— uh. It’s great, both of them are great. And we’re getting out and pushing them on the pace. That’s when we’re at our best.”
I’m not sure what I can parse from that. Maybe you can do better?
Thompson had 27 points, nine rebounds, and three assists in the win over the Kings, 130-125.
