Leandro Barbosa and Andre Iguodala were teammates on the Warriors during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. How much fun is the “Brazilian Blur” having watching the 2015 NBA Finals MVP compete in the Orlando bubble? “Iggy lied to me,” Barbosa jokingly said this week on the “Runnin’ Plays” podcast. “He said that he was going to retire after his deal with the Warriors (expired). And he got an extra two years with the Miami Heat. “I sent him a text, I said, ‘Man. Stop stealing money from other teams, man. Come on. You gotta retire.’
Thompson has mostly been out of the spotlight since the end of the Warriors’ season in March, keeping his rehab and life private … give or take a social-media post or a kayak trip. So, if you’re wondering how Klay is doing heading into camp, his former teammate and current Warriors player mentor coach Leandro Barbosa has the latest. “He’s very good,” Barbosa said on the latest episode of the “Runnin’ Plays” podcast. “He’s my boy, ya know? He’s happy. I haven’t seen Klay for a couple years, and I went to his house [this week], we kind of hung out and we kind of talked. He was happy with me being here, I was happy being here, especially having a chat with him. But he’s doing good, he’s awesome, he’s recovered.”
Leandro knows very well what lies ahead for Klay. “I had the same injury that he has, my injury was a little worse than him,” Barbosa explained. “The main thing about the injury that he has, is not about the knee, he’s healthy and good, it’s right here (in his head). The mindset. Not being scared going into the lane, to not be afraid to do what he used to do. I’ll take a little time for him to have that fully, 100 percent confidence.”
