Klay Thompson is not back on the court yet, following his NBA Finals knee injury, but he is finding ways to keep busy. He is rehabbing and even tested out life as a NBA sideline reporter.

He also appears to be talking a lot more. He joined Uninterrupted for an extended interview recently, and it may be the most I’ve heard Klay talk. Ever.

The interview covers a lot of ground, including why he chose WSU, how his life changed from living in Pullman to playing in the NBA and his first splurge purchase. We also learn that Klay recently bought a boat.

He may not be No. 1 on the court this season, but he’s still No. 1 in our hearts.
