Describing a copy of Bryant’s book, Mamba Mentality, Thompson dubbed it his”basketball bible”, and said that it was the greatest gift that he had ever received. Inside the cover of the book, Bryant wrote “To Klay, Rings, Rings, Rings, Rings…” — likely a homage to the three championships that Thompson had already won throughout his career with the Warriors, as well as a nod to Bryant’s drive to notch as many rings as possible.
Bryant, passed away this past January in a helicopter accident, but his presence is clearly still felt everywhere.
