Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson appeared to enjoy his summer, and he earned the nickname "China Klay" for his travels overseas that included air-balling a three-pointer and botching a dunk while cameras rolled. 

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr is a fan of the two-time NBA champion.                  

"If I could do it all over again, I would be Klay," Kerr told reporters during Warriors media day Friday. 

"I mean that. I want to be Klay. He's got it figured out. He just wants to play hoop, and have fun and play with his dog. The most low-maintenance guy on Earth." 

Update: Thompson seemingly didn't notice "China Klay" was a big hit among fans during the offseason:
