“I remember in the Finals last year he got cleared to play for the next game,” Looney recalled. “And he started sending these motivational texts like ‘I’m coming back tonight,’ ‘I can’t wait to get out there,’ ‘I’m gonna hold the best player, I’m gonna lock [him] up,’ ‘I’m excited!'” He said the team was excited for Thompson. “We’ve never seen this side of Klay,” he remembered. “We were like, ‘Yeah Klay, we’re excited for you, too. We’re gonna get out there and we’re gonna take care of business,'” he continued. “[Klay] was like ‘This is the wrong [chat]. This was meant for my brothers.'”
“Probably Klay, I remember in The Finals last year he got cleared to play,” Looney told KGO-TV’s Larry Beil. “And he started sending these motivational texts like ‘I’m coming back tonight’, ‘I can’t wait to get out there’, ‘I’m gonna hold the best player.’” Thompson was forced to miss Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals after injuring his hamstring, and it was the first playoff game Thompson had missed in his career. “We never seen this side of Klay,” Looney continued. “We were like ‘Yeah Klay! We’re excited for you too!’ He was like … ‘this is the wrong (chat) … This is for my brothers.’”
“I saw him a couple weeks ago at the facility,” Kerr recalled. “We talked a lot about him expanding his game. I would like to play him more minutes. You know, traditionally, he’s been kind of a 25-minute a night guy. I’d love to get that over 30. “I want him to shoot corner 3s,” Kerr urged. “He’s got a really nice touch and he shoots them in practice, but I think next year is the time to extend that range out to the corner 3, and we’re going to give him every opportunity to expand his game. So, I’m thrilled that Kevon is back. He’s a huge part of what we do, and I think a bigger part going forward given his development.”
