Klay Thompson

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are former NBA MVPs. They superstars are simply incapable of connecting with normal citizens.

But luckily, the defending champion Golden State Warriors have one sharpshooting All-Star who can relate to the common people: Klay Thompson.

After winning Sunday in Brooklyn, the Warriors had Monday off in New York City. (They play next at Oklahoma City on Wednesday night.) Curry went on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Thompson also found his way to TV. He appeared in a news story on scaffolding safety.

Quick background here: A scaffold collapsed Sunday in Manhattan and injured five people. Thompson grew up in Portland and Los Angeles and went to Washington State, but he showed enough local savvy on the topic for his man-on-the-street interview to air on Fox News 5.

"I usually observe if the piping and stuff is new," Thompson says. "Sometimes, you know, if something looks like it's been there a while, I kind of try to avoid that."

Wisdom. Absolute wisdom.

This is all just pretty hilarious. Thompson could have done anything in New York City, but he decided to take a few minutes to be on local news in a market he does not he even reside in. This is peak Klay.

Actually, signing a toaster last season was peak Klay Thompson. Everything else -- including this -- is just normal.
