While the Steph Curry and the rest of the Curry Clan have been making headlines this summer, the other Splash Brother’s family has been making waves as well. Klay, of course, won an NBA championship with the Warriors. Younger brother Trayce was called up by the White Sox and is hitting .500 through his brief MLB career. Even oldest brother Mychel was in the news as he signed with a pro team in the top Italian basketball league.

But not everything the Thompson’s have done has left a good taste in their mouths – Klay in particular. Klay recently released his first signature shoe with Chinese company, ANTA Sports and went over to China to promote the shoe. At some point, he visited a Chinese restaurant to sample some of the local cuisine. Needless to say, whatever he put into his mouth didn’t taste quite as he envisioned:

I don’t know if it was the taste, or the fact that it was damn-near-on-fire; but Klay spit that out quicker than any jumpshot he’s ever taken.
