Mychal Thompson, the father of Klay and radio broadcaster for the Lakers, joined “The Damon Bruce Show” on 95.7 The Game on Wednesday and offered a spirited defense for keeping the Warriors’ core four intact for the long haul.

“They should keep these guys together five, six, seven years,” Thompson told John Dickinson and Matt Steinmetz who were in for Damon. “They’re all in their late 20s, mid-20s. So, given good health, being blessed with good health, they’ve got a five or six-year window to win multiple championships.

Thompson believes that the quarter of Klay, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green can parallel the success of the dynasty Bulls.

“Michael Jordan and Scottie (Pippen) were winning championships until their mid-30s," Thompson said. "There’s no reason why these guys cannot do the same thing as long as they stay healthy and hungry.”

When it was pointed out that owner Joe Lacob is always looking out for the next big thing, Thompson paid his respects to the Warriors’ boss but doubled down on his position

“You don’t break these guys up, man. These guys are the Beatles. You can’t be Yoko Ono around these guys.”
