Klay Thompson returns to his hometown of Los Angeles this weekend to take advantage of his brother Trayce and the Dodgers against the San Francisco Giants. There, he found a fun way to try to beat the heat.
At the bottom of the sixth inning, the stadium cameras turned to the new 2022 NBA champion. Beer in hand, Thompson began downing it all, drinking it down until there was no more. nothing.
The clip went viral with over 440,000 views in just over an hour. But some comments are absolutely rich.
Some fans believe that if you’re stuck in the California heat for hours waiting for the shadows to hit your row, you’re blameless in how you drink your beer. Others took offense to NBC Sports calling Klay’s attempt to drink her beer “destroying” her.
Klay Thompson had a comeback year for the ages in the 2021-22 season. After missing the previous two years with knee injuries, he joined the Warriors for the second half of the season just in time to join them in their NBA title chase.
Thompson started all 22 playoff games, averaging 19 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game in the process.
The end result was a fourth NBA championship for the seven-time All-Star shooting guard. It’s worth celebrating all summer long, whether it’s at a baseball game or in your basement.
