Klay Thompson’s Immediate 1st Move After 4th Warriors Championship

Klay Thompson’s Immediate 1st Move After 4th Warriors Championship

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics last week to claim their fourth NBA championship in eight years.

After an extended dry spell filled with injuries and bad luck, many wondered if Klay Thompson and Co. would ever get back to this point. The fact that they did, and then proceeded to win it all, obviously meant a ton to all parties involved.

Often when players in any sport win a chip, they are asked where they’re planning to go first. Disneyland is generally a pretty popular answer. But Thompson is cut from a different cloth.

Where did the Warriors sharpshooter opt to go first after claiming his fourth career NBA championship? To the most Cali place imaginable:

Because Twitter is a perfect encapsulation of society as a whole, reactions to Thompson’s stop at In N Out poured in immediately:

This objectively wasn’t Thompson’s strongest playoff run. He averaged 19 points per game on 42.9 percent shooting from the field – both his lowest marks since 2016.

In addition, Thompson’s 38.5 percent three-point shooting percentage in the postseason was his lowest since 2013.

All that being said, the fact that Thompson was able to bounce back from his injuries and return to the court provided an emotional lift for the Warriors that can’t be expressed in numbers.

There’s a reason why Golden State failed to win a chip while he was out, only to immediately win again upon his return. His presence matters.

Thompson has always marched to the beat of his own drum. That applies to his approach to women as well as his relationship with Stephen Curry.

But everything he does tends to be absolutely legendary.

What will Thompson go viral for next?

Time will tell.
