Steph Curry reveals hilarious Klay Thompson pre-game ritual

Like many NBA players, Steph Curry has his own pre-game ritual that he does to keep him focused and grounded for each game that he plays. Prior to Game 6 between the Golden State Warriors and the LA Lakers, Curry revealed the unique pre-game ritual of Klay Thompson.

The “Splash Brothers” have been teammates since the 2011-12 season when the Warriors drafted Thompson with the 11th overall pick. Due to their decade-long history together, they’ve grown comfortable and immune to each other’s habits.

Curry, who was recently asked by Jalen Rose which player in Golden State has the most unique pre-game ritual, revealed Klay’s one-of-a-kind routine before each game.

“When he walks in the locker room, he’s got the local newspaper sitting on his chair and he’ll take about 30 minutes when he gets into the arena. Sit in the chair, catch up on his current events, get his mind right, just be in his own world.” Curry answered.

“All he’s missing is a rocking chair and a cup of coffee.” The 2021 Finals MVP added.

Reading a newspaper isn’t the only unique pre-game ritual that the four-time champ has done. Last season, there were multiple times when Klay arrived in the arena riding a bicycle. It’s another unique way to get warmed up for games and enjoy his view on his way to work.

The Warriors will try and extend the series as the Lakers hold a 3-1 lead, putting them in a rare situation. Curry, who has been carrying most of the load for the Warriors, is averaging 25.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 8.0 assist against Los Angeles. Thompson has been decent for the team as well, making 44.4% of his three-point shots.

Steph Curry had a masterful Game 4 as he had a triple-double to help the Warriors attempt to even the series. Curry had 31 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists that could’ve been important for the team. Late in the fourth period, Steph was able to get his hands on a loose ball and could’ve called for their last timeout, but he threw the ball out of bounds.

Not only did Curry turn the ball over, but Draymond Green’s sequence where he made a terrible pass also played a huge part in their loss. Tonight, they are looking to come back in the series and force a Game 6.
