The Klay Thompson Link

Podcast P, a show conducted by Paul himself, created another controversy in the meantime. The conversation was with Klay Thompson, who answered about his on-court hassle with Booker back in 2022. He reportedly displayed 4 fingers to Booker in reference to his four championship rings. He regrets having taunted Booker on that occasion. “I’m not really proud of that one,” Thompson said.

Thompson added that he was overwhelmed that day and Booker was busting his mood that day. But at the same time, he doesn’t appreciate what he did either. Klay said that his rings are all over Wikipedia and he doesn’t need to show them off.
