Newly revised for the start of the 2017-2018 NBA season, Klay Thompson: The Incredible Story of One of Basketball’s Sharpest Shooters details the inspirational story of basketball’s star, Klay Thompson. This unauthorized biography of Klay Thompson highlights his quick ascent into the league as a sharp shooter. Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry form arguably the most dangerous backcourt in the NBA due to their impressive ability to shoot and make three-pointers. It isn’t uncommon to find the Warriors down more than ten points with only a few minutes to go, and yet still win the game behind a three-point shoot out led by the Splash Brothers.

With a recent four-year, $70 million contract that he signed in the 2014-2015 NBA season, Klay Thompson still has much to prove, with his prime still to come. It will be incredibly exciting to follow the young career of this sharp shooter. Golden State’s cast of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green led by Steve Kerr will be an exciting team to watch out for as they seek to replicate their recent success as 2015 NBA Champions and 2016 NBA Finalists.

An excerpt from the book:

When it comes to the ability to shoot three-pointers, few players have perfected that skill better than Klay Thompson. Klay was born with the pedigree of an NBA player and a shooting stroke that can be compared to that of former NBA players like Reggie Miller, Ray Allen, or Alan Houston. Thompson’s genetic makeup has also helped him in his ability to play multiple sports, such as baseball and football, though basketball has always remained his top game.

Klay grew up in Oregon, mainly because his father used to play for, and was drafted by, the Portland Trailblazers. Klay did not have to undergo the dramatic, difficult upbringing that most other rags-to-riches athletes were subject to in their lives. Unlike some other NBA stars, he was not raised in a neighborhood ravaged by crime or gang wars. He always had food on the table, and his family was always there to provide for and support him, sometimes even more than he needed. He lived a comfortable life and had a father who was always present for the family. Just because Klay was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, though, does not mean that his road to the NBA was as easy as you might imagine.

Growing up with father Mychal Thompson, who was a 2-time NBA Champion and a former top overall draft pick, was indeed beneficial and fruitful for Klay Thompson and his brothers. His father instilled in him and his siblings the qualities and the proper mentality needed to play as a professional athlete. His father’s stories and Klay’s natural curiosity made him more and more determined to become a professional basketball player in the NBA.
