Klay Thompson Used 'Space Jam Clip' To Announce His Return

“How I’m pulling up to chase tomorrow, Bill Murray is my spirit animal,” Thompson wrote. “IM SO EXCITED TO SEE YALL DUBNATION ! LETS GET IT”

Thompson suffered a torn ACL during that aforementioned Finals game against the Raptors, which meant he did not take the floor during the 2019-20 NBA season. While working to get back onto the floor in 2020-21, Thompson tore his achilles, and as a result, Sunday will mark 941 days since the All-Star guard has last appeared in a game. It had previously been reported that Thompson and the Warriors circled the game against Cleveland for a return.

Story Highlights

  • Thompson told the world that he’s on his way back via his Instagram account, where he shared the famous clip of Bill Murray showing up in Space Jam and giving the Tune Squad a late boost in its game against the Monstars.

  • The Warriors confirmed the news by posting a video of Thompson saying he’s back.
