While on the Dubs Talk podcast, Kuminga spoke about a lot of things. One of them was who he would choose to hang out with on an off day. Kuminga hilariously answered the question and made his choice.

The hosts of the podcast put Kuminga in a hard spot. They asked the rookie who would he rather spend his day with. The choices offered, were to go with Klay on his boat or play a round of gold with Curry. After a brief hesitation, Kuminga chose the former because he does not like golf.

He said: “Golf ain’t really my thing. Sorry Steph, I’d go with Klay. Yeah, I’ve seen the videos. Come on, I’ve seen already. I’d go with Klay for sure.”

During the podcast, they also covered other topics. Notably, they spoke about the Kevin Durant-Draymond Green interview. And, they also discussed how the two rookies can elevate the Warriors this season.

Jonathan impressed a lot in the Summer league. He showcased his athleticism and defending ability while playing. However, given that he is a rookie, he may not have a big role in this season.
