What will Klay do in retirement? Dad makes funny prediction

Steph Dell Mychal Klay

Klay Thompson loves driving his boat around the San Francisco Bay.

"Captain Klay" has been taking to social media while out on the open water to answer questions from Dub Nation.

"He's doing well. He keeps everybody up to date on his Instagram feed," Klay's father, Mychal, said Tuesday on KNBR's "Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks" show. "I get my updates from what he says on Instagram."

Is there a chance that once he retires from playing, we never see Klay again?

"Yeah. I'd be surprised. I'd be shocked if he sticks around the NBA scene," Mychal said. "He's really into the ocean, really into his boat. I could see him getting on a boat and just sailing the world -- cruising the world.

"Becoming an old sea captain in The Bahamas, and taking tourists out for excursions and stuff [laughter]. I could see him doing that. And if you've ever been to The Bahamas, you'll understand why he'd want to do it. It's the most beautiful sailing or boating water in the world.

"It's so calm and the water is so clear. It's the perfect boating atmosphere."

Yeah, this sounds perfect for the three-time NBA champion.

And you better believe Warriors fans from all around the globe would flock to The Bahamas to support Klay's boating endeavors.
