Klay Thompson Is Celebrating New Max Deal With Special Pre-Game Ritual Edition Sneaker Drop

 

Most professional athletes have some kind of pre-grame ritual. Some rituals are stranger than others, some are normal, some are spiritual. Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson was guest at ‘The Jump’ last year, and one of the things he talked about was his ritual, which involves newspapers.

Before every game, Klay is reading the newspaper. He started doing so, when his mother suggested it to him.

 

“I just think, especially my generation, we’re on our phones so much, all the time, even me, I’m a bad culprit of it, that my mom actually suggested this to me. She said, ‘Klay, instead of standing at your phone pregame all the time, why don’t you get a newspaper or a book and read that before a game, try to take your mind off things.’

“I was like, ‘Mom, that’s a great idea.’

“So I started reading the sports section … I like reading the sports section about high school hoops or college basketball, and just like that old school feel. I like to feel the newspaper, so shoutout to my mom for helping me with my pregame ritual.”

 

To celebrate his new 5-year, $190 million deal with the Golden State Warriors, Anta and Klay will be releasing a special edition sneaker drop this weekend, highlighting his pre-game newspaper locker ritual. The EastBayTimes x Anta KT4s will at Oaklandish’s downtown Oakland store this coming Sunday. The longer I look at them, the more I like these. I need to get one.
