The Warriors prepare to visit the Sacramento Kings tonight and they will be looking for their 38th win of the season. Success is sweet and the Warriors have had the best start in franchise history, so times are good.
Steph Curry has taken his game to a new level and he is being rewarded with numerous endorsements. Klay Thompson is having an incredible year himself and the endorsements should be coming soon as well. According to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group, Thompson will announce his new sneaker deal during All-Star Weekend:

We reported that Klay Thompson had inked a deal with Anta Sports earlier in the season, but no official announcement was ever made by Anta or Klay’s representatives.
About five days ago weartesters.com reported that Klay Thompson was seen wearing Anta during practice, which only confirms that Thompson has signed a deal with the Chinese based sportswear company. Anta has some prominent names on their roster like Kevin Garnett, Chandler Parsons, and Rajon Rondo.
Thompson will likely receive his own signature sneaker with Anta, which could be a big reason why the Splash Brother decided to leave the Nike Swoosh for an up and coming shoe company like Anta.
