Klay Thompson trolls Dillon Brooks and offers a sly reminder of the Warriors’ titles
Klay trolls Brooks by counting the four Warriors championships that originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
In case anyone forgot, the core Warriors of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have won four NBA championships combined.
With 17 seconds remaining in Golden State’s 133-119 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night’s FedExForum, it was Thompson who reminded Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks of his success as the two players exchanged words during Anthony Lamb’s free-throw attempt.
Thompson repeatedly counted to four on his fingers and subtly flexed the four championships while Brooks yelled at him from the court.
For the second straight matchup, Brooks and the Grizzlies defeated Thompson and the Warriors. Not only that, Brooks played well while Thompson struggled, further stoking tensions between the two.
Thompson scored 14 points on 6-of-17 shooting from field and 2-of-9 from 3-point land while posting an ugly minus-30 in plus/minus. Brooks, on the other hand, scored 18 points, grabbed three rebounds and dished out three assists on 7-of-10 shooting and a perfect 4-of-4 from 3-point range.

The fourth and final regular-season matchup between the two teams came nine days after the previous meeting, which saw Brooks and Green at the center of the drama.
Should the two teams meet again in the playoffs, the drama is likely to intensify further.
