Basketball is becoming more global by the day and Klay Thompson offers further proof of that. The Warriors sharpshooter has been traveling throughout China over the past week as part of NBA Nation's 12-city tour this summer, and in this time he has come across hundreds of international Warriors fans and many more who are now becoming fans of the team thanks to this visit. Thompson took a break from his busy trip and caught up with team broadcaster Bob Fitzgerald via Skype. Watch their conversation and view photos of Thompson's trip below.

Thompson's trip is part of a growing Warriors presence in China. The Warrior Girls just returned from their China trip earlier this week and Harrison Barnes will head over there to join the NBA Nation tour in August. Plus, the team has preseason games in Beijing and Shanghai this fall.

The 2013 playoff run definitely gave the Warriors a greater degree of exposure, and now the team is using that platform in an effort to reach fans across the globe.
