Additionally, he has several endorsement deals that net millions more annually. Needless to say, Klay is set financially for multiple lifetimes. But when you make that kind of money, wasteful spending comes into play. “I made some mistakes. Like hoarding — especially with the clothes,” the three-time NBA champion recently told Maverick Carter of Uninterrupted. “I would just have a full closet and I’d only wear about five percent of the closet. And I’m like, ‘What am I gonna do with all these extra clothes, man?’ “I had these hoarding tendencies that I had to rid. It took some time.”
This is pertinent because Klay had more to say regarding past mistakes. “What also would kill me for a while was the team poker game,” he explained. “We had some sharks on the team. Every road trip on the plane. It’s a great way to build camaraderie. “But it’s tough to do on your rookie deal, especially when you’re playing guys who have been in the league for eight, nine years. But that competitive drive comes in, especially with poker — it’s such an emotional game. “If I got to buy in more than once … when I have to tell my financial advisor what happened, it’s not good. It’s like getting brought into the principal’s office.”
James Harden’s performance on Saturday night was enough to make even those who see him put up gaudy numbers night after night step back and marvel at his work. Harden scored a season-high 60 points in 31 minutes, and the Houston Rockets sent the struggling Atlanta Hawks to their 10th straight loss with a 158-111 romp. He joined Klay Thompson and Kobe Bryant as the only players in the past 25 seasons to hit 60 points in just three quarters. “It’s like everything else he does — unbelievable,” coach Mike D’Antoni said.
“Klay’s hilarious,” Spellman said after the game. “It was hard not to laugh because you don’t think of one of your teammates like a sideline reporter, but it was fun. It was cool. I’m happy I got to be a part of that with him.” Longtime teammate Draymond Green couldn’t believe what he was seeing as Thompson interviewed Spellman after the game. “A lot of s— has changed,” Green said. “Klay didn’t even like doing interviews, now he likes interviewing people. What the hell’s going on around here? “It’s crazy. I guess he’s bored.”
