Mychal Thompson on Klay Thompson’s future with Warriors: He, Steph, Draymond should never wear another uniform

Klay Thompson is 33 and has had two significant injuries. But now that he’s further removed from that, what’s your outlook on how much longer his NBA career will be? Mychal Thompson: “We talk about it all the time. I say, ‘Look at LeBron James as an example.’ LeBron is going to be 39, but he has the body of a 29-year-old because of his workouts and his work ethic. Reggie Miller retired when he was 40. John Stockton, the same thing. There have been a bunch of guys that have played into their late 30s or close to 40 at a high level. Klay can do the same thing because his game translates into maturing well because he’s a shooter. Shooters last a lot longer than guys that win dunk contests.” “It’s up to him. It depends on how much drive and ambition he has. But I told him, ‘Play until you’re 40 because this will be the sweetest life you have in the NBA. So take advantage of it while your body allows you to do it.’ Don’t quit too soon. But you have to put the work in to have that longevity the same way that LeBron and Steph do it. You see how Stephen Curry works out? Steph is a great example for all the young guys on how to stay conditioned year round.” -via SportsKeeda / August 30, 2023
