Klay Thompson wants to retire as a member of the Golden State Warriors after 10 years, according to his father, Mychal Thompson.

Thompson’s father, who is also a Los Angeles Lakers radio commentator, said Klay wants to retire with the Warriors after another 10 years and loves everything about Stephen Curry, both as a player and man.

“Klay loves playing with Steph, he respects him so much. He talks about him all the time and how hard he works, how dedicated he is to the game and to his family. He has said it to me in private that he loves playing with Steph and he wants to retire as a Warrior after another 10 years.

He wants to go into the Hall of Fame along with Steph. That’s how close he feels to him and how honored he is to play with him. They have formed a special bond.

That’s why I told him, I said, ‘Even though you’re going to probably miss this year, you and Steph will still have eight years together as long as you take care of your bodies,’” Mychal Thompson said on Dell and Sonya Curry’s podcast Raising Fame.

Thompson and Curry have won three titles together for the Warriors.
