Klay Thompson doesn’t get caught up with social media reactions to him talking to his hand
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson has made The Meme Team once again. The Dubs sniper was caught saying “I missed you” to his right hand after making his fourth three-pointer midway through the fourth quarter of their 115-105 victory over the Portland Trailblazers.
The clip immediately went viral over social media, but Thompson wasn’t aware of it. In fact, it appears like he isn’t much of a fan of the internet, and doesn’t really care that it became such a hit.
“The Internet is a very volatile place. I don’t try to be on there too much because it’s a lot of range of emotions. Mass information is crazy. but — I try to read books and stay away as much as I can during the season because you can drive yourself crazy if you get into Twitter spats with people.”
Thompson looks like a very low-maintenance personality despite being a star in the NBA. His teammates, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, did say that Thompson’s lifestyle is very chill and his pre-game routine includes reading newspapers.
Curry also said before that Thompson is very knowledgeable about a lot of things. In fact, Thompson made waves over social media last year, when he eloquently gave his opinion about scaffolding.
In basketball news, Thompson finally broke out of his shooting slump, erupting for 32 points on 12-of-21 shooting to lead all Warriors scorers. The Washington State standout had struggled mightily with his shot throughout the past six games prior to this one, converting just 6-of-31 of his threes.
The Warriors hope that this is the start of a hot streak from their sharp shooter.
