Klay Thompson Took Issue With Warriors' Fans Lacking Enthusiasm After Allowing The Phoenix Suns Their 16th Win Of The Season
Well, if this ain't the sports' equivalent of #RichPeopleProblems. Klay Thompson has gotten so used to living such a blessed and charmed basketball life that he no longer understands that fandom is inherently fickle. Done so much winning at home that he's completely forgotten how lonely losing can be. I understand that he wasn't blaming the fans necessarily, but to even point out the factors that, god forbid, led to him playing in front of an unenthused crowd rings as hollow and entitled as a billionaire suggesting that even the most blue collar of business have a valet so that he doesn't have to park his own car.
The fact of the matter is that Warriors' fans aren't substantially better, louder, or more engaged than any other fanbase if granted the opportunity to root on a transcendentally talented team on a nightly basis for years on end. Let their relative silence during a reality check of a loss to the Phoenix Suns serve as proof of that. The bandwagoners that top off any capacity crowd in front of any quality team didn't sign up to cheer on a piss poor performance. Therefore, if Klay Thompson doesn't want his false sense of unconditional support in Oracle Arena compromised then he better do better than to let Devin Booker go off for 37 in putting the paddle to the ass of his far superior team. Even if I'd rather he not, as it was quite funny watching/listening to him repeatedly bounce his hand off the table and the Warriors feel a type of way that the rest of the NBA is all too familiar with...
