Myers' hilarious answer when asked who Klay wants Warriors to draft


The Warriors hold the rights to the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, and a lot of people believe they aggressively will look to trade the selection.

Are Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green blowing up Bob Myers' phone offering their opinion on what the franchise should do with the pick?

"Klay doesn't care (laughter). He doesn't care. He won't watch the draft," Golden State's president of basketball operations said Wednesday morning on 95.7 The Game's "The Morning Roast" show. "He'll show up at training camp and be like, 'Is that the guy we drafted right there? Ah. He looks pretty good.' 

"Draymond cares. He loves it. He's a junkie. Steph is different. He's almost like, 'I trust you to do what you do.' If I called Steph and asked him, he'll give his opinion. And I'll probably do that at some point because I want to hear what he thinks about it when we narrow it down.

"But Draymond -- he's the uninvited commentary. He'll do it no matter what you say or what you think. So it's a good blend. You got one guy that's off the grid, you got one guy who's kind of all over you, and the other guy is the normal back-and-forth guy.


"So it's a good mix."

Myers' explanation on Klay is laugh-out-loud funny.

Warriors fans have heard the stories of how Thompson is hard to track down during the offseason, which is why the franchise was so pleased that he participated in the team's recently-concluded voluntary minicamp.

But the three-time NBA champion did reach out to Myers on multiple occasions during the playoffs.

"Basketball is so big to him, it's almost like he doesn't know what to do without basketball," Myers said. "He's so motivated. He was texting me during the Finals and prior (to that). You can feel his competitiveness coming through.

"He wants to play basketball. He's a Warrior in the true sense of the word."

And Warriors fans cannot wait to watch the "Splash Brother" take the court whenever the 2020-21 season finally begins.
