A Q-uiet Stephen Curry workout (at last!) — sights & sounds
[+Klay anecdote 😎 First 4 paragraphs free]
SALT LAKE CITY, UT — It’s 18 degrees outside in Utah Jazz-land so I’m staying in their world’s-newest-airport until as late as I can before heading to the arena for tonight’s Golden State Warriors pregame views. That allows me to catch up on a little super-rare treat we got two days ago at practice in Denver: Stephen Curry working out, but to no music, which allowed me to hear the exchanges between him and Bruce “Q” Fraser (“Q-uiet workout”, see what I did there?!). Akin to the Klay Thompson rehab write-up, this doesn’t happen every day.
Before I throw the paywall up, let me add a small “Klay national treasure” anecdote from yesterday (not the day before)((;. After everyone was gone and while I stayed in the gym uploading video after video on the YouTube channel, Klay finally strutted out from a corner of the gym. I’m guessing he was probably getting treatment on his heel (or knee, per the ACL), as he walked out with someone who I believe is on the training staff, but all this is just “gross speculation” on my part, as I have zero other information.
In any case, changed into street clothes, he was chit-chatting about the ocean and it being the “last great frontier” on the planet — you know how praiseful Klay can be with nature — but also saying all this… with sunglasses on!
Mind you, I’m sure he took them off shortly thereafter because the weather became quite white, as snow began to fall:
Below the paywall demarcation line 👇 I have more anecdotes on other players and, of course, the chronicle of Curry with Q.
