Steph Curry-induced slumber? Klay Thompson literally caught napping during Warriors game
Golden State Warriors superstar Klay Thompson’s time off the court has been rough over these past few seasons. The five-time All-Star has been limited to sitting courtside in street clothes, which hasn’t been the most exciting of things for the 31-year-old shooter – especially since the Warriors have once again struggled this season.
On Sunday, Thompson had to endure watching yet another L the Dubs dropped as they visited the Atlanta Hawks and Klay wasn’t thrilled to see his team play, to say the least. The three-time champ was seen napping mid-game as he witnessed the Warriors’ third-straight loss (via @The Sports Place):

We feel you, Klay.
It’s the second straight season that Thompson will be missing an entire season due to an injury. He initially missed time when he tore his ACL in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals which forced him to rehab for the entire 2019-2020 season. After successfully recovering from surgery, he then injured his Achilles tendon prior to the start of the 2020-21 season. Needless to say, the Warriors have missed the services of their second-best shooter for the past season and a half.
With the loss, Golden State has now dropped seven of their last eight games as they continue to struggle in the second half of the season. They’ve now plummeted to the 10th spot in the Western Conference as a spot in the play-in tournament looks to be hanging in the balance. The good thing for the Warriors is that they’re headed back home after a rough three-game road trip and hopefully try to bounce back from this recent slump.
Can someone wake these Warriors up?
