Golden State Warriors sniper Klay Thompson defies Memphis Grizzlies striker Jackson Jr. on Thursday night as he spoke of the NBA’s last championship.
Thompson won his fourth NBA title when Golden State led the Boston Celtics in match 6 of the NBA Finals 103:90. Thompson, although he had a great shooting night, still contributed 12 points in 41 minutes and was a big reason why the Warriors had the success they had after his return.
Speaking to the media after the victory, he recalled a tweet that Jackson released after the Grizzlies defeated the Warriors in March. The tweet sounded “loud in numbers.”
Golden State beats Memphis in his playoff match, and Thompson certainly hasn’t forgotten the tweet.

“The energy of the characters is alive and well,” Thompson said. “There was a Grizzlies player who tweeted ‘out loud in numbers’ after they beat us in the baseline, and I felt really good. I can’t wait to tweet this thing. I have to see, I’m such a “damn clown.”
“Are you crazy about us? Like, you haven’t been, bro. We were there. We know what is needed. So keep that in mind, come back. … Twitter fingers, can you believe it? ”
Thompson’s journey back to form is especially incredible.
He tore his ACL in the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors and then while he was gearing up to play again in the 2020-21 season he suffered an Achilles injury.
He returned to the Warriors in January and was a big reason why Golden State made it to the postseason and won the NBA title.
