Klay Thompson is a professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association. He plays shooting guard for the Golden State Warriors and is known for his skill and efficiency as a shooter, especially on three-point shots.

Klay Alexander Thompson was born in Los Angeles, California on February 8, 1990. He was raised in Lake Oswego, Oregon, by his mother, a former collegiate volleyball player, and his father, a former NBA number one draft pick. When he was 14, his family moved to Ladera Ranch, California.

He played basketball at Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Rancho Santa Margarita. In his senior year, he helped to take his team to the state championship game and was named Division III State player of the year.

Thompson chose to attend Washington State University, where he played for Coach Tony Bennett. He was a starter as a freshman and led his team in three-pointers. He averaged more than 12 points per game and was named to the Pac-10 All-Freshman Team. During his sophomore year, he reached 1,000 points faster than any player in school history. He averaged almost 20 points per game and was named to the All-Pac-10 First Team. As a junior, Thompson set the record for most points scored in a single season and was again named to the All-Pac-10 First Team. He decided to declare for the NBA Draft at the end of his junior year at Washington State University.

He was drafted by the Golden State Warriors to play for new head coach, Mark Jackson. Although Thompson was snubbed from the NBA All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge that year, he played well enough for the team, that mid-season, they traded away their star shooting guard Monta Ellis in favor of Thompson. He was selected as part of the NBA All-Rookie First Team at the end of the season.

Thompson and his teammate, Stephen Curry, developed a reputation as the best shooting duo in the NBA and were known as the “Splash Brothers.” They combined for 483 three-pointers during Thompson’s second year as a professional, only to best that the following year.

The 2014-2015 season was outstanding for Thompson. He signed a contract extension with the team on Halloween and set a career-high of 41 points in a game the next day. The day after that, he set a new career-high of 52 points. He was selected for the NBA All-Star Game that year and would go on to break his own three-point record. Thompson was a big part of helping his team to an NBA Championship in 2015.

Thompson’s 2015-2016 season was also successful, and he would return to the NBA All-Star Game. He also competed in the Three-Point Contest. However, The Golden State Warriors did not win the NBA Championship after being upset by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals.

In 2016-2017, Thompson was named to the All-Star Game and helped his team to another NBA Championship. He repeated this feat the following year. 2018-2019 was another promising season but ended with Thompson tearing his ACL in the playoffs. After battling back from an unsuccessful knee surgery, he was again injured while practicing with the team. This time, an injured Achilles tendon would keep him off the court until January of 2022. He made his return in a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on January 9 and he scored 17 points in the 20 minutes that he played.

One of Klay Thompson’s largest interests outside of basketball has always been shoes. In 2014, he was introduced to Anta, a Chinese shoe company, by Rajon Rondo, who he shared an agent with. Thompson signed a $2 million contract with Anta that year. He found success working with the company and appreciated the amount of creative freedom they allow him. He partners with designer Robbie Fuller, who has worked with other players such as Damien Lillard and Derrick Rose, to create designs that represent his tastes.

Thompson’s shoes are more popular among basketball players than shoe collectors and have a lower price point than other players’ shoes. They have a reputation as good all-around shoes that will work for any position. Thompson signed a new 10-year deal with Anta in 2016 that was reportedly worth $80 million.

Klay Thompson formed KAT Ventures, LLC (his initials), and in 2017, it obtained a federal trademark registration for his name “KLAY THOMPSON” for endorsing and promoting the goods and services of others. In 2021, the company applied for a trademark for “KLAYSKICKS” and “KLAYSKIX” for the same endorsement services as well as for shoes.

Thompson has business partnerships with many companies, including Just Live CBD, Tissot Watches, Nerf, Bevel, Fanatics, Cobra, Activision, Kaiser Permanente, Thrive, Wheels Up, Mercedes Benz, and Monster Energy. He also partners with Nolan Arenado and Joe Harden to produce a Napa Valley product called Diamond and Key Wines.
