Free agent WR Odell Beckham Jr. wished the star basketball player success in the NBA finals in 2022 and said Thompson has always inspired him. OBJ says the pain and suffering he has been through was all for this day. 

Thompson has recently recovered from multiple injuries, and he went on to win the NBA championship this year.

After being injured and being away from the game for a few years, Thompson made a comeback to average 20-plus PPG for the Warriors this season.
