Mychal Thompson, father to Golden State Splash Brother Klay Thompson, is making his own splash during the NBA Finals.
The former Gophers basketball star and No. 1 overall pick in the 1978 NBA draft used his Los Angeles-based radio show to blast LeBron James earlier this week.
"LeBron couldn't have survived in the 80s with the physicality and the words guys said to each other back then," Thompson said and was reported by Bay Area News Group's Golden State beat writer Diamond Leung.
The comments came after an altercation involving James and Draymond Green during Game 4 that later led to Green's one-game suspension. James said after the game that, "Draymond just said something that I don't agree with. … Some of the words that came out of his mouth were a little bit overboard, and being a guy with pride, a guy with three kids and a family, things of that nature, some things just go overboard."
