Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson has a bit of a rivalry going on with Boston Celtics fans. After their Game 3 loss in the TD Garden, the Warriors star called the home crowd “classy” for shouting profanities towards teammate Draymond Green throughout the contest — and Klay wasn't being complimentary.
Ahead of Game 4 on Friday night, Thompson was welcomed by some raucous jeering as he came to the court for warm-ups. The Warriors star had an epic reaction for the home fans (h/t Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints):

Instead of just ignoring the booing fans, Thompson decided to egg them on by raising his arms and encouraging the crowd to get louder. The Warriors star is one of the most adored individuals in the NBA and it's hard to hate on this guy, especially after all that he's been through over the past couple of years. Well, Celtics fans are the exception to the rule here as they clearly have some feelings of animosity towards Klay.
To be fair, though, you could say that the Warriors stud brought this upon himself after he made his comments about the Celtics supporters. Given their unforgiving nature, you just knew that Boston fans weren't going to let that pass.
