Mychal Thompson proud of son, Klay, for extension with Golden State

first_imgOAKLAND — A smile formed on Mychal Thompson’s face, a proud parent enjoying the milestone reflecting his son’s professional growth. Thompson’s son, Klay, recently reached a four-year extension with the Golden State Warriors that will likely be worth around $70 million, depending on the NBA’s 2015-16 salary cap. So on Saturday, both Klay and general manager Bob Myers sat at a press conference basking about their long-term future. In the back of the room stood Mychal, who was in town to call the Lakers-Warriors game as an analyst for KSPN 710-AM.“With this contract comes a lot of expectations with your performances and how you conduct yourself,” Mychal told this newspaper moments earlier. “This won’t change him. He’ll still work hard.”Mychal, who won two NBA championships with the Showtime Lakers during his 12-year NBA career, praises and nitpicks his son on the radio ever since the Warriors selected him 11th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft. “He’s my toughest critic,” Klay said. “He’s pulling for us to lose while I still get 50. He’ll always be a Laker for life.”Yet, Mychal downplayed that Klay’s extension minimizes the Lakers’ chances to acquire him. Thompson would have become a restricted free agent this summer without an extension agreement by Friday, though Golden State could have matched any opposing offer. “There’s always a possibility down the road,” Mychal said. “Right now, I’m just impressed with the team the Warriors have. He’s a part of it, so I’m happy he has a real good chance to be an NBA champion.”Words of wisdomLakers coach Byron Scott maintains high affection for Jerry West for obvious reasons. West was the Lakers’ general manager when the franchise acquired Scott in 1983 from the San Diego Clippers. He then spent 11 of his 14 NBA seasons with the Lakers and won three NBA championships. Scott still views West as his “basketball dad” despite the former Lakers player and executive working as an executive advisor for the Golden State Warriors in the past three years. Scott reported West provided brutally honest feedback before accepting past coaching jobs in New Jersey, New Orleans and Cleveland. “He doesn’t pull punches,” Scott said. “He’s going to tell you what he thinks, period. You got to respect that about him.”Scott joked that West talks for about 50 minutes of an hour-long conversation. So what did West say about Scott taking the Lakers’ coaching job?“‘The Logo’ knows how much I wanted to coach here,” Scott said. “So I didn’t think there was any need to call him on this one.”Showing supportSteve Nash has not been around the Lakers’ practice facility for the past week since the team ruled him out for the 2014-15 season because of recurring back injuries. Warriors coach Steve Kerr sensed the 40-year-old Nash has stayed in high spirits. “There is a peace of mind with Steve,” said Kerr, who was the Phoenix Suns’ general manager for part of Nash’s eight-year tenure. “Nobody has worked harder than him; he prepared himself as best as he possibly could. It just didn’t work out.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
