Klay Thompson, 2015 NBA Champion, Golden St. Warriors/Washington St. takes some time to speak with East L.A. Sports Scene and Rico Cabrera, Sr. during a busy and productive Day 4 at the USA Basketball Olympic Training Camp, held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).
Watch and listen in as Klay shares his thoughts on being named to the 2016 Men’s Olympic basketball team, its preparation for the Rio De Janeiro Olympic games, and his moving remarks when asked about USA Basketball’s military outreach effort entitled, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS).
