Although turning up in the club is fun for most of us, if you’re a rich and famous NBA players, it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Just ask Golden State Warriors guard, Klay Thompson.
He’s just 26, but for the two-time NBA All-Star, clubbing just isn’t as fun anymore.
“Club life is alright,” he said. “Being kind of famous is like being an attractive female. Every time you go out to dinner or to a nightlife function, every guy kind of wants to talk to you about hoops and, like, they want to buy you a drink and chop it up about, ‘Oh, who you playing next?’ You know, ‘You should pump fake on this shot. You should do a step back.’ I’m like, ‘Man, I appreciate that, but I just want to listen to some good music.’ You get a lot of male love being in this position.”
“It was better when I was a rookie,” Klay added. “People were like, ‘Oh, you’re tall. What do you do?’ Now it’s like, ‘Oh, I know what you do. What are you doing out? You play the Blazers in two days!’ ”
