Klay Thompson is really good at basketball.
He's been an All-Star three straight years and was named Third-Team All-NBA the last two seasons.
What's the secret to his success? He recently talked about his preparation with CBS Sports:
"My approach to the game is a lot more caluculated now -- as far as getting my rest, recovery after a big workout. Balancing your life is essential; on the court, off the court -- it's huge.
"As a high school player and as a collegiate, I would just kind of show up and play. As a professional, I have a certain routine that is very regimented. If I don't have a gameday nap you might as well chalk it up as a loss for me. I have to have my gameday nap just to get my mind right, get a little rest, maximize your energy for the game.
"Whether it's the arena or the practice gym, we're always there. Don't get to see the light of day sometimes so it's very important for me to get outside -- get some sun, get some fresh air.
"You have to get your mind off the game. I'm really a simple man -- it could be just sitting outside reading a book or playing pool, playing chess, video games. I love to take my dog, Rocco, to the park -- just stuff to keep your mind active, or your body active and get away from baskteball.
"You need that balance in your life. You can't just get totally consumed by basketball and then it kind of wears on your happiness. You gotta have a certain balance so you are eager to go to the game every day, and your hungry to get in the arena and put on a show."
