NBA players – well, all pro athletes – are used to being interviewed, it’s a part of their job.
Usually, those interviews take place after morning shootarounds, halftime, and in post-game press conferences.
All of my scaffolding knowledge comes from Klay Thompson’s expertise.

Sometimes a major sports media outlet or local network will run pieces about their charity work or another non-basketball related topic like their family or the holidays.
Once in a blue moon, if the occasion calls for it, they’ll even be asked about something political.
Klay Thompson doing random interviews in NYC about scaffolding is so funny. While I'm kinda like: why/how did that even happen? I'm also not surprised that it happened. #nycKlay is for the people ??? https://t.co/DX0bsidd2K

Rarely do athletes get interviewed about ordinary, everyday events.

That wasn’t the case for Klay Thompson who was stopped on the streets of New York City and asked his opinion on…scaffolding.
