Also, we haven’t mentioned Klay’s most prized possession yet, his boat which he rides across the bay to get to practice. Klay Thompson is one of the highest-paid athletes in the world and his team is one of the most successful teams in recent history. The Warriors have done it all and are hungry for more. If the team continues to dominate, Klay’s current net worth of $70M will surely continue to grow.
