Klay Thompson talks about his penchant for writing.
Thompson’s return to the hardwood is one of the most awaited home-comings in the history of the NBA. The 5x All-Star had a rough phase both physically and mentally, missing two NBA seasons during his prime.
Nonetheless, the Warriors star had always maintained a positive outlook. He recently spoke about the activities he engaged in during his rehab to keep himself optimistic in the process of recovering. One of them being writing.
“I just think when you write down your thoughts on paper, it’s like a decompression method. To be able to read and write is an incredible gift, and I’ve been trying to sharpen my mind in the times where I can’t be my athletic self,” Thompson said.
The 31-year also spoke about some of his all-time favorite books, which included “Be Water, My Friend” by Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter, and “Danger Zone” by David Klass. Thompson has also been in talks with Klass to creates a series of the book as well.
