Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson has friends of a certain caliber. Not just any people. Recently Klay Thompson posted a photo on Instagram of him playing a game of chess with none other than boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. Actually, he is not the first one to play chess against the phenomenal boxer and Filipino hero, because Gianmarco Pozzecco also did the same, as you can read HERE.
The Golden State Warriors legend is currently in Pacquiao’s native Philippines after spending a few days in China.
We did NOT have Klay Thompson casually playing chess with Manny Pacquiao on our Bingo card today 😂🥊

Thompson needs some time off. The 33-year-old recently stopped by the P with Paul George Podcast to reflect on his legendary career.
During the interview, Thompson promised to spend more time enjoying the moment instead of getting caught up in the high-intensity lifestyle of the NBA.
The legendary shooting guard will enter his 13th NBA season in 2023-24. Over the years, Thompson has established himself as one of the best pure shooters in NBA history, helping lead the Warriors to four championships during his tenure.
