Klay Thompson finds out from a reporter that he's lost millions

How do you deliver bad news?

A reporter might not have realised they were doing so to Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson after the announcement of the All-NBA teams.

Thompson, who has been crucial in the Warriors’ return to the NBA finals for the fifth year running, failed to get a spot on any of the three All-NBA teams as voted on by the basketball media.

Unfortunately for the soon to be out-of-contract Thompson, this means he isn’t eligible for a five-year supermax contract worth a casual $221 million USD ($320.3 million AUD) from the Warriors, and can at most be offered $191 million USD.

While that’s hardly anything to sneeze at either, the three-time NBA champion was clearly less than impressed.

Guards including James Harden, Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook and Kemba Walker were selected ahead of Thompson.
