Klay Thompson Says Goodbye to Warriors: Curry’s Emotional Tribute Revealed!

San Francisco, California – After deciding to leave the Golden State Warriors and sign with the Dallas Mavericks, Klay Thompson received a heartfelt tribute from his longtime teammate Stephen Curry on social media.

Curry took to Instagram to share a series of photos featuring him and Thompson, expressing his sentiments about missing his backcourt partner and referring to them as the “Splash Bros 4 life.”

Throughout their time together on the Warriors, Curry, Thompson, and star forward Draymond Green formed a formidable trio that led the team to four NBA championships from 2015 to 2022. Former Warriors head coach Mark Jackson previously lauded them as “the greatest shooting backcourt in the history of the game,” a statement that proved true over the years.

However, signs began to surface during the 2023-24 season indicating that Thompson’s tenure in Golden State was nearing its end. The 34-year-old saw reduced playing time and was shifted to a bench role as the team focused on developing younger talent. This season marked the first time Thompson averaged under 20 points per game since his third NBA season in 2013-14.

Despite Thompson’s challenges on the court, Curry expressed his desire to continue their partnership, emphasizing their shared goal of achieving success and winning games.

With Thompson’s departure, Curry now faces the task of leading a revamped Warriors roster. The team aims to fill the void left by Thompson’s departure with new talent while striving to return to playoff contention in the upcoming season.

As Curry prepares to navigate the changes ahead, the legacy of the “Splash Bros” era in Golden State will always be remembered as a pivotal chapter in the team’s history. Thompson’s contributions, alongside Curry and Green, have left an indelible mark on the franchise and the NBA as a whole.
