The sharpshooting guard sat at the podium after scoring 18 points in the win and answered one question. After a few moments of silence, Thompson started to exit the podium when a reporter grabbed the mic and started asking him another question.

Despite being disappointed about his slightly extended stay at the podium, Thompson gave a thoughtful answer on what it meant to see teammate Andrew Bogut get such a warm welcome back at Oracle.
Then, after a few more questions, Thompson finally got to leave the podium.
