You’re a 23-year-old millionaire. An NBA star. But your parents have you on a $300 week allowance… Does that seem right? Well if you’re Warriors guard Klay Thompson, not only is it factual, you can expect a deduction if you’re involved in any on-court altercations too. Klay’s father Mychael is an ex-NBA player – he spent time with the Spurs, Blazers and the Lakers – and he controls his son’s wallet.
Klay was fined $35K by the NBA for his involvement in a scuffle that started between Pacers Roy Hibbert and Klay’s teammate David Lee. Because of that, the elder Thompson has put the young guard on punishment:
“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’!”
The 23-year-old doesn’t have access to his money, all cheques are paid to M

On top of Klay Thompson’s 35,000 fine for his part in Tuesday night’s Warriors-Pacers fight, is a personal fine, from his father. Yes, Klay’s father, former NBA player, Mychal Thompson, who is in charge of his bank accounts, will be putting a restriction on his son’s allowance to teach him a lesson. And guess who’s picking up the extra cash…Klay’s brother, Mychel...
If you’ve watched a fair number of Warriors games this season, chances are you’ve made fun of Klay Thompson at some point. It’s just what happens when you watch someone who is so frustratingly inconsistent.
Now here’s a story that will let you make fun of him even more—not because it has to do with Thompson bricking more layups, but because it’s just so damn comically...
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 Golden State Warriors lost to the New York Knicks 109-105 on Wednesday but no one can say that Stephen Curry didn’t do his part. In the breakout career performance, Curry put up 54 points of offense knocking down 11-of-13 three point attempts.

The Golden State Warriors as a team should try and take some of Stephen Curry spunk and spread it around to the rest of the team. The passion in which Curry plays the game should be contagious. One night he is fighting and the next night he comes back to score 54 points. It didn’t matter to the Warriors, they still lost the game. No other starter on the Warrios scored more than...
On the biggest stage of basketball, Stephen Curry goes off for a career high 54 points (18 of 28), 11 of 13 from beyond the arc, 7 assists and 6 rebounds in the 4 point loss to the New York Knicks. He is the only player in NBA history to score 50 plus points on 10 plus made threes. Even though the Warriors did not get the result they would have liked, Curry made a huge statement...
I don’t think a lot of people expected Steph Curry to be as good as he’s been for the Warriors when they drafted him No. 7 out of Davidson. Curry had a new career high and one of the best performances on the season Wednesday night, as he lit up Madison Square Garden for 54 points on 11-of-13 from three point range and 18-of-28 shooting overall. A new definition for heat check...
Golden State's Stephen Curry put up an insane 54 points at New York on Wednesday, but all anyone is talking about is how badly he left Draymond Green hanging.
The Boston Celtics got revenge for the last game against the Warriors, beating them 94-86 and limiting Stephen Curry to 27% shooting
