Klay Thompson gets interviewed by NYC station to talk about scaffoldings

Klay Thompson

Klay Thompson’s stint in Brooklyn, New York nailed him a peculiar interview with a New York local Fox News station, looking for a man-on-the-street interview with locals to address scaffolding structures.

The Golden State Warriors sharpshooter had a short bit talking about piping while his backcourt mate Stephen Curry chopped it up with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

“I usually observe if the piping and stuff is new,” Thompson said (h/t Andrew Gould of Bleacher Report). “Sometimes, you know, if something looks like it’s been there a while, I kind of try to avoid that.”

No basketball-related questions ensued for the casually-dressed Thompson, whose interview aired the morning after the Warriors edged the Brooklyn Nets 118-111 after nearly relinquishing a 28-point lead in classic fashion.

Thompson’s low-key demeanor wasn’t what was shown in the game against the Nets, as he scored five clutch points down the stretch after Curry fouled out late in the fourth quarter after recording a season-high 39 points.

The 6-foot-7 marksman hit a turnaround elbow jumper and made his only three-point attempt of the game when the lights shone the brightest, allowing the Warriors to widen the gap of a balanced Nets’ attack.

It’s all in the pipes for Thompson.
