Warriors’ Klay Thompson has all the motivation he needs hanging in his locker

On any given day of the Warriors’ season, Eric Housen might be booking flights and hotels, acquiring snacks, arranging team dinners and stocking every player’s locker with assorted jerseys and shoes and socks. As vice president of team operations, he’s tasked with countless critical details of a long NBA season—and the occasional random request.

And so, one afternoon in October, Housen set about clipping and laminating a large piece of newsprint, before carefully hanging it in the locker of one Klay Alexander Thompson. It was one of the quirkier asks Housen has fielded in his 30-plus years with the team. But then, Klay is one of the quirkier souls to have passed through this franchise.
