With a big break until their next game, the Warriors spent a couple days in New York City.
Klay Thompson spent part of his Monday walking around the city.
And as only Thompson could, he wound up appearing on a local news report. But he wasn't talking about basketball. Not even close.
Courtesy of Twitter user @MP_Trey, Thompson was interviewed on Fox 5 NY to talk about ... scaffolding.
"I usually observe if the piping and stuff is new. Sometimes, you know, something looks like it's been there a while, I try to avoid that," Thompson said in the report.
