Klay Thompson Loses His Warriors Championship Hat In The Ocean While Driving His Boat
The Golden State Warriors cemented their place as one of the NBA’s great dynasties with Thursday’s 103-90 Game Six win over the Boston Celtics sealing their fourth Championship in eight seasons.
The 4-2 Finals series win brought the Warriors a seventh championship, breaking a tie with the Chicago Bulls for sole possession of third place in the all-time winners list behind the Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, who both have 17 titles.
Unfortunately, Klay Thompson lost his Warriors Championship Hat in the ocean while driving his boat. The Golden State shooting guard was on live vibing while driving his boat with his hat on when the sea breeze blew his hat off.
At first, he can be seen smiling before coming to reality that he’s lost his championship hat. “That hurts.. that hurts.. sh*t,” he said.
The Warriors are also the first team to win four championships in an eight-year span since the Bulls won six from 1991 to 1998. Stephen Curry led the way for visiting Warriors with 34 points, seven assists and seven rebounds to claim his fourth title and first Finals MVP award.
“I’m so proud of our group,” an emotional Curry said after the win, adding, “… at the beginning of the season nobody thought we would be here except everybody on this court.”
The triumph is a remarkable turnaround for the Warriors, who missed the playoffs in the past two seasons amid a torrent of injuries before defeating the Nuggets, Grizzlies, Mavericks and Celtics this year to claim the Larry O’Brien trophy.
