SAN FRANCISCO – Klay Thompson has taken up swimming in chilly San Francisco Bay to mix things up as he endures yet another year-long rehab for his right Achilles tendon immediately after working back from a torn ACL in his left knee.
Truly a Splash Brother now. “It was life changing!” he declared, “It was amazing. I was like, ‘I need to do this more often.’” “I'm going to incorporate that into my routine now,” Thompson added. “Tim Duncan swam his whole career and he played for 21 years.
These last few years have allowed me to look at things and re-evaluate how I train and how I diet, that's for sure. As I'm getting older I've got to do all the little things.” He has ditched the walking boot and is driving again.
