Klay Thompson shares his Michael Jordan memories

In the absence of live sports, it would appear everyone on planet earth with any interest in sports is watching The Last Dance - including Klay Thompson.

If somehow you are unaware, The Last Dance is a 10-part documentary chronically Michael Jordan and the 1997-1998 Chicago Bulls. Klay’s dad Mychal Thompson retired following the 1990-91 season, but remained connected to the NBA and got Klay, and his brothers, an autograph from Jordan and Scottie Pippen. Take it away, Klay:

If you watch the video closely enough, you can almost see the jealously on Jordan’s face as he pats a young Klay on the head, with MJ wishing he could grow up one day to be a 42% three-point shooter instead of a measly 33%.

Or maybe he was jealous of Klay’s future beard. If this quarantine lasts much longer, we might need ESPN to produce a documentary on the evolution of Klay’s facial hair.
