Klay reflects on ‘uncertainty’ of final Warriors game against Kings originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

Klay Thompson’s last game in a Warriors uniform probably wasn’t what he wanted.

In an NBA Play-In Tournament game against the Sacramento Kings, one of the greatest shooters of all time went scoreless, missing all 10 of his attempts from the field and six from behind the arc. The Warriors lost by 24 points, ending their 2023-24 NBA season.

During his press conference with the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday, Thompson had the chance to reflect on his emotions during the loss, which would mark the end of an era for Golden State.

“Just a lot of uncertainty,” Thompson began. “Our season was over, my contract was up, so I just remember (thinking), ‘I’m going to take this all in.'”

Thompson acknowledged that the loss still hurt, but he enjoyed it nonetheless, knowing that his future was uncertain.

“There’s nothing guaranteed in professional sports, whether I get a contract extension or I’m somewhere else,” Thompson explained. “When I was in that Warriors uniform, I looked up and there were Warriors fans all over the arena. I was still very grateful at that moment and I just wanted to take it all in because you never know when something good is going to end.”

Andy Bernard of “The Office” once said, “I wish there was a way to know you’re still living in the good old days before you leave them.”

It seems Thompson was able to recognize that he was in the good old days, even in their final moments. Let’s hope his seasons in Dallas are better than the last seasons of “The Office” without Michael Scott.
