Warriors star Klay Thompson channels ‘Semi-Pro’s Jackie Moon for Valentine’s Day message
Golden State Warriors star Klay Thomspon was feeling the love on Valentine’s Day, and he went out of his way to share it with the rest of the world. The five-time All-Star took to Instagram to send out his Heart’s Day greeting while also invoking none other than Jackie Moon of the 2008 comedy Semi-Pro.
Based on the image he shared on social media, Thompson was clearly enjoying the holiday:

The weather was a bit gloomy, but this is still a glorious shot of Thompson chilling on a boat with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge as the backdrop. The 31-year-old even added an #ilovemycity hashtag in his post to share his fondness for the city of San Francisco. We’re not entirely sure who Klay’s date was on this romantic holiday.
You can clearly see in the photo that Thompson is still sporting a full brace on his injured right foot. Klay went under the knife last November to repair a torn Achilles he sustained during preseason. It was an unfortunate season-ending injury for the Dubs star, but he is expected to make a full recovery from the same.
As for the Warriors, the team has been picking up steam of late. The Dubs have won two out of their past three games, and are currently sitting at the eighth spot in the West with a 14-13 record. Stephen Curry has been nothing short of outstanding for Golden State, but there’s no denying that the Dubs are missing Thompson’s services at this point.
