Klay Thompson probably hadn't thought about a career in hockey until he saw this latest bobblehead. The Golden State Warriors 6-foot-7 shooting guard got a glimpse into what he'd look like as a hockey player with his San Jose Sharks bobblehead and the ideas started to fly.

The Warriors gave out the bobblehead during their preseason game against the Sacramento Kings at SAP Center on Thursday. Thompson gave his thoughts on what it would be like to put on some skates and how he would fit in on an NHL roster.

Thompson isn't the first Warrior to get a Sharks bobblehead. His fellow Splash Brother, Stephen Curry, had a similar giveaway last season.
