Klay Thompson is way more than a basketball player. He's a man with many interests.

The Warriors shooting guard loves to play chess, read the newspaper, walk his dog Rocco, get out in nature, travel the world, etc.

And there's one other thing in particular Klay is fond of.

"I love the water so much and it was a dream of mine to own a boat one day," he recently told GQ Sports. "And when I signed my deal with the Warriors, I rewarded myself with one.

"It's honestly changed my life -- go fishing, go diving, see the coastline."

And then the five-time All-Star provided the best quote of all:

So is he "Water Klay" or "Boat Klay?" 

Either one works.
