Splash Brother Headed South? Klay Thompson Eyes Bahamas Olympic Bid


Klay Thompson, the sharpshooting Golden State Warrior known for his “Splash Brother” duo with Stephen Curry, has ignited a firestorm of speculation regarding his Olympic aspirations. Reports suggest Thompson might be in peak physical condition and eyeing a return to international competition.

Recent news indicates Thompson is joining the Bahamian national basketball team for training camp in Houston. This move comes with a caveat – Thompson isn’t expected to play in the upcoming Olympic qualifiers. His father, Mychal Thompson, a former NBA champion himself, hails from the Bahamas, making Klay eligible to represent the island nation.



Whatever the motivation, the news creates a fascinating scenario. Team USA, headlined by Stephen Curry and coached by Steve Kerr, is considered a heavy favorite for the gold medal. The prospect of Thompson potentially facing off against his NBA team in the Olympics is a storyline fans wouldn’t want to miss.
