Video: Fan gets thrown out of the arena after exchanging words with Warriors players
The Golden State Warriors are simply on a different level compared to the rest of the league. They are unstoppable on offense and they also boast one of the best – if not the best – defenses in the NBA.
This is a team that has a pair of championships and a record-breaking 73-9 season in the last three years. They have two lights out shooters in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, an elite defender in Draymond Green, and an elite, all-around offensive weapon in Kevin Durant. Oh and their bench players are probably good enough to go toe-to-toe with other playoff teams. Simply put, the Warriors are too loaded that it’s not even funny.
As always, winning will generate a lot of hate. It’s just how things go: once you reach a certain level of dominance, indifference among fans will almost be non-existent — people will either love you or hate you. One Milwaukee Bucks fan — seen in the clip below — is certainly a great example, as he heckled Klay Thompson, who just fell to the floor after a foul.
With the way that Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, and David West backed their teammate, you could feel that the fan must have said something nasty.
Well, we don’t need to speculate: Thompson and West shared some of the “pleasantries” that they heard from the passionate fan, according to Mark Medina of The Mercury News and Chris Haynes of ESPN:
Klay Thompson tells ESPN the fan called him a “b——.” He said “it was just unnecessary.”

David West said fan was dropping some F bombs to Klay, and West wasn’t having any of it

Whoever that guy is, he should know that such heckling is unnecessary, ESPECIALLY against the Warriors, because they are one opponent you would never want to get angry. The Dubs showed how the profanity got them going, as they outscored the Bucks, 20-8, following the incident, and won, 108-94.
