Is there anything Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson can’t do? He can shoot the lights out, defend anybody in the league, can do a steady trot while riding a horse, and now he’s even riding camels. It’s Klay’s world, we’re just living in it. Summer Klay is truly an icon. He almost makes you disappointed that the season begins in a month and a half.
Thompson is in Qatar to promote the 2022 World Cup as a part of the Road To 2022 tour. He’s joined by a few other NBA stars including Carmelo Anthony, former player Tracy McGrady, and Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton. Klay is making sure he’s enjoying his time off. He even posted a picture to Instagram declaring the grouping of himself, Anthony, McGrady, and Walton as “future BIG3 champs,” though Melo wasn’t buying it.
Once Klay’s summer is over, he turns his attention back to the Warriors’ quest for a third straight championship and their fourth title in five years. In that stretch, Thompson has made the All-Star Game in every season. Thompson has scored 20-plus points per game during that stretch.
It’s no secret, Thompson’s best attribute is his ability to knock down shots from behind the arc. He has never shot below 40 percent from deep during any season of his career and is likely to go down as one of the most accomplished 3-point shooters in history.
Whether he’s knocking down a 3 from way behind the arc, or riding a camel in Qatar, Klay always looks like he’s having fun.
