Klay Thompson’s celebration after 3-pointer had people debating
Klay Thompson’s celebration after making a shot in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday had fans debating his intent.
Thompson returned from a hamstring strain that kept him out of Game 3 of the series and played well in the first half of Game 4, leading the Warriors in scoring.
Late in the second quarter, he made a long jumper near the corner and celebrated with his hands near his groin.

The celebration was noted by many fans, but there was a debate about whether he was doing the Russell Westbrook “rock the baby” celebration or the Sam Cassell Big Balls Dance.
Sam Cassell Dance remains the best celebration ever

The way he curled his hands makes us think he was doing something closer to the Cassell celebration. Whatever the case, the way he was playing while fighting through an injury was worthy of any kind of celebration he wanted.
