VIDEO: Warriors’ Klay Thompson teases return, goes full Larry Bird for Halloween

Klay Thompson, Larry Bird, Celtics, Warriors

Golden State Warriors superstar Klay Thompson is finally looking healthy as the three-time champ dressed as ‘Larry Legend’ for this year’s Halloween festivities. Thompson, who’s finally just months away from making his return to the Warriors’ lineup, gave the entire Dub Nation a teaser of him getting back to game shape with the perfect costume to spook the entire league.

Man, how satisfying is it to see Klay Thompson dribble the basket and knock down a smooth stepback three after years? I could watch this for days:

The former three-point champion chose the most ideal Hall of Famer to impersonate. Larry Bird, a three-time NBA champion and a three-time league MVP, is one of the most lethal shooters the league has ever seen and dominated the 1980s to help build a legacy for the Boston Celtics.

As weird as it is to see Thompson rock the C’s Green and White, a nod from one great shooter to another is one heck of a flex from the Warriors superstar. Not everyone can claim to be as good as Larry Bird. Although Thompson did not say this outright, his trophy cabinet (and his accurate moves) are self-explanatory.

The Warriors have been missing his services over the past few seasons. After a traumatic ACL injury in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, Thompson has yet to suit up for Golden State as the franchise continues to find some trouble to get back to playoff contention. This season, with Thompson hopefully returning in full force, Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and the rest of the hungry Golden State Warriors are aiming to finally make some noise in the West.
