Klay Thompson swims in San Francisco Bay to celebrate NBA Finals Game 4

Perhaps no Golden State Warrior has ever appreciated living in the Bay Area quite as much as Klay Thompson.After the Warriors fought back for a road game victory in the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics, the team returned home to blazing hot temperatures — and Klay took to the San Francisco Bay to cool off and rejuvenate. A photo posted to his Instagram stories shows Thompson in chest-deep water with the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge behind him (based on the view, it looks like he’s somewhere near the Presidio Yacht Club). “The ocean heals the mind, body & soul,” he captioned the image.Thompson is no stranger to the San Francisco Bay. Over the last several years, he’s picked up boating as a hobby and can often be spotted skipping his way around the bay, beloved bulldog Rocco in tow. In a recent Warriors YouTube video, Thompson said frequent trips out onto the water in his Axopar 37 Cabin boat helped raise his spirits while recovering from knee and Achilles injuries.”Boating helped me through some hard days, man,” Thompson said. “… There’s something about the ocean that’s calming and therapeutic and resets your whole soul. It was some really good days during some not so good times.”He’s also been known to commute via boat to the Chase Center; there’s a nearby dock where Thompson can anchor while he practices or plays.”There’s nothing like an early morning launch out of the harbor,” Thompson said. “There’s nothing really better, besides winning a championship, but boating is definitely second to playing ball.”The Warriors are tied with the Celtics 2-2 in the NBA Finals. Game 5 tips off at the Chase Center at 6 p.m. Monday.
