Last year the Golden State Warriors had a commanding 3-1 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers…

… and then Klay Thompson insultingly wore a freakin’ Dodger cap to AT&T Park and never apologized and the next thing you know the Cavs beat the Warriors 4-3.

This year the Golden State Warriors had a commanding 3-1 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers…

… and then Klay Thompson had the good sense NOT to wear anything remotely looking like freakin’ Dodger blue… and, guess what?

The Warriors win the 2017 NBA Championship!

Coincidence?  As they say… ahem… “I THINK NOT!”

Congrats to all Warriors and Warrior fans!

2017 Warriors Win!

Readers know I’m not so happy with Klay Thompson.  Common sense dictates wearing a f***ing Dodger hat to a Giants game is simply out-of-bounds.  The Cavs have had the Warriors number ever since.

But, over the weekend, I spoke to an in-the-know Warriors exec.  I, of course, voiced my Klay Thompson outrage… and he said, “you know, he got taken to task by the other players pretty good for that one.”

That is not the same thing as an apology.  But it’s nice to know the Warrior players (unlike Warrior management) care enough about their SF Giant fanbase to police their own on this one.

And, somehow, the fog that Thompson cast upon the Warriors magically started to lift:  Warriors 126 Cavs 91.

Still waiting for an apology… most likely will be waiting forever… but it’s a start.

Coincidence?

Maybe.

Maybe not.

P.S.  Thompson had just 2 points at half time in the home opener.  Klay, please, you’re a classy guy, there’s still time to apologize to we Giants fans that support the Warriors, too.

UPDATE:  The Warriors won the next game.  I still stand behind the spirit of my post.

Ugh.

I am a big fan of Klay Thompson.  He’s intelligent, well-spoken, and, clearly, a heck of a basketball player… responsible for seemingly single-handedly saving Golden State’s season on many occasions.

Unfortunately, I am now less of a Klay Thompson fan.

Last night the SF Giants played the f***ing LA Dodgers at AT&T Park.  Klay’s brother Trayce plays for the f***ing Dodgers.  Klay went to the Giants game last night to support his brother — which is obviously a very cool thing to do.

What isn’t cool is wearing — FLAUNTING — a f***ing LA Dodger’s baseball cap at a home Giants game.

Do you know how many times the f***ing Dodgers have broken our heart?

Now you’ve broken our heart, too… the heart of the very San Francisco fans that have so sincerely supported you these past few years.

You could have simply worn a cap with the word “Trayce” on it… fans would have appreciated your loyalty to your brother… and you not shoving a despised symbol in our faces.

Instead, you choose to be disrespectful.  You’re a professional athlete who presumably should know your own fan base.  Shame on you.

Sadly, I will be rooting just a little less loudly for you come Monday night.

Go Steph!  Go Draymond!  Go Iggy!  Go Bogey!  Go Harrison!  Go Shaun!  Go Mo!

Boo on you, Klay Thompson.

Please apologize so I know you are the classy athlete I thought you were and not someone absolutely clueless and hurtful.
