Klay Thompson sees similarities in himself, Kris Bryant originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

What do Klay Thompson and Kris Bryant have in common?

A few things, according to the Warriors shooting guard and NBA champion.

Thompson took to Instagram Live on Thursday and discussed the successful season the Giants are having while sharing some love for the former Cubs third baseman.

“I love the Kris Bryant acquisition,” Thompson said. “He’s a great player.

“He reminds me of myself — tall, rangy, gun of an arm, hitting the long ball.”

Thompson (6-foot-6) and Bryant (6-foot-5) are both, in fact, tall. And Thompson used to play baseball, by the looks of it.

Bryant may share more similarities with Thompson’s brother, Trayce — an outfielder who’s currently a member of the Iowa Cubs.

The two Bay Area stars could have more in common come this fall. The Giants are on their way to the playoffs, and Bryant could play a big role in bringing another World Series to San Francisco.

Thompson’s Warriors won the NBA Finals in 2015, ’17 and ’18.
