While speaking on a podcast, Golden State Warriors center Kevon Looney recalled the time when his teammate Klay Thompson accidentally sent a series of text messages to the team’s group text during the NBA Finals.
Looney appeared on ABC7’s “With Authority” podcast where he was asked who’s the “worst group text offender” when it comes to sending messages to people they weren’t intended for.
And, of course, Looney’s answer was Klay.
“I remember in the Finals last year he got cleared to play for the next game,” Looney recalled. “And he started sending these motivational texts like ‘I’m coming back tonight,’ ‘I can’t wait to get out there,’ ‘I’m gonna hold the best player, I’m gonna lock [him] up,’ ‘I’m excited!'”
He said the team was excited for Thompson. “We’ve never seen this side of Klay,” he remembered.
“We were like, ‘Yeah Klay, we’re excited for you, too. We’re gonna get out there and we’re gonna take care of business,'” he continued. “[Klay] was like ‘This is the wrong [chat]. This was meant for my brothers.'”

Apparently, Thompson meant to get pumped about his return to the hardwood with his brothers Mychel and Trayce, not his brothers on the Dubs.
“That’s just Klay, man,” Looney said.
