I know as people read this they are going to assume the title and reaction from the parent is a joke.  For all intensive purposes, Klay Thompson’s parents are dead serious. Klay Thompson is in his second year in the NBA out of Washington State.  He’s made improvements this season, and is averaging 16 points a game. The 23-year-old Thompson is the son of former NBA center  Mychal Thompson.  Thompson who’s been known to play a serious role in his sons basketball life did not disappoint this time either after witnessing Klay get involved in a brawl between his Warriors teammate David Lee, and Pacers center Roy Hibbert. Thompson was fined 35,000 for his actions, and according to Deadspin, his father was not pleased.   Reports are now circulating, that the elder Thompson and his wife, Jule have docked an allowance they give Klay for getting involved. “I saw Klay mixed up in the beginning, tied up with George Hill,” Mychal said. “I say to myself, don’t do nothing stupid now, don’t throw a punch, don’t throw the ball at anybody.” “Then Roy Hibbert turned his back & [Klay] was like ‘now’s my chance’!” “I was like ‘you idiot’!” He then went onto say that he recorded the incident to show his wife Julie who was out at the Cheesecake Factory buying Mychal Thompson some salmon for dinner. When she got home he said, “sit down & watch your dumb son” Young Klay doesn’t have access to his own money, and receives a regular stipend from his parents. Harsh right. Klay is 23, I said that right. “He will [find out he's been fined by us] when he sees that cash envelope show up a little short this week,” he said. Klay is a better son, and man than me, because I know for a fact as a 23-year-old millionaire, my parents could not have access to my money. That’s just me. I understand his father is a former NBA player who is fully aware of the perils athletes go through while blowing money. I just couldn’t do it.
