If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, wearing your teammate’s face on a T-shirt is perhaps the funniest.
Stephen Curry showed up at a Warriors press conference over the weekend sporting a shirt emblazoned with Klay Thompson’s face. Based on Curry’s elated facial expression, the fashion statement brought him a great deal of joy.
The shirt features Thompson’s smiling visage and the words “in the past like a ponytail.” Thompson uttered the phrase back in November, right in the midst of the drama between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. When asked in a press conference what it would take to get the team back on track, Thompson suggested a few wins and “this will be in the past like a ponytail.”
Klay can’t take credit for coining the phrase, however. He copped it from Drake, who drops the line in “Right Hand.”
The T-shirt is made by WarriorsTalk, and it’s been restocked just in time for a surge in popularity. Below Thompson’s face are the words “national treasure.” Curry paired the look with another only-in-the-Bay original: a 510 hat.
The Warriors play the Lakers on Christmas Day in Oakland. The game tips off at 5 p.m.
