Klay takes vicious jab at ‘bum’ JJJ after Dubs wins title Originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Klay Thompson will always speak his mind.
And after the Warriors clinched their fourth NBA title in eight years with a 103-90 win over the Boston Celtics on Thursday night, Memphis Grizzlies big man Jaren Jackson Jr. was on Thompson’s mind.
“Strength in numbers is alive and well,” Thompson told reporters after the win. “There was this Grizzlies player who tweeted ‘strength in numbers’ after they beat us in the regular season, and it pissed me off so much. I can’t wait to retweet that stuff. Damn bum. I had to watch this I’m like, ‘That fucking clown.’
“Sorry, this memory just popped up. Are you kidding us? You’ve never been there before. We’ve been there before, we know what it takes. So to be here again, hold this .”
The next reporter was called in to ask Thompson another question, but the Splash Brother wasn’t quite finished yet.
“Twitter fingers, can you believe it?” he said to the room with a chuckle. “I have an elephant’s memory. I don’t forget. And there were a lot of people kicking us when we were down.
The moment was very emotional for Thompson, whose last time he stepped on the floor in an NBA Finals was in 2019, when he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in the heartbreaking loss. of the Warriors against the Toronto Raptors.
