Klay honors dying Warriors fan's wish with FaceTime visit originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Klay Thompson is considered one of the coolest guys in the NBA. And it doesn't get much better than the latest example from the Warriors superstar.

On Monday, Thompson honored the dying wish of a Warriors fan by FaceTiming with her and her husband, as KTVU's Frank Somerville shared on Facebook.

Somerville on Friday shared the story of Debbie Wright, an avid Warriors fan who was told she has two-to-six weeks left to live while battling metastatic breast cancer. Debbie's husband, Randall, shared her story to Somerville and told him what a big fan of Klay and the Warriors she is. Her last wish was to meet her favorite Warrior.

"I ask for nothing else ... no gifts, money, or anything ... just for the possibility of a visit from Mr. Thompson," the message said to Somerville.

The power of social media came through for Debbie and Randall, and Klay once again was a champion for what matters most.

“Greetings, Mr. Somerville! We had our video meeting with Klay this morning! It lasted about 25 minutes. Klay is really a kind and gentle soul. He even introduced his dog Rocko to my Bride!" Randall wrote to Somerville.

Championship rings, All-Star appearances and All-NBA teams are nothing compared to what Thompson did for the Wright family.
