Klay Thompson weighs in on his funny comment going viral
Klay Thompson weighed in on his funny comment during the Golden State Warriors’ win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night.
Thompson broke out of a shooting slump that had lasted much of the month by going 12/21 including 4 of 5 on threes. After making his fourth three of the night Saturday, Thompson hilariously looked at his shooting hand and said “I missed you” to it.
Klay hadn't hit 4 threes in a game in over 2 weeks.

Thompson was asked after the game about his words to his hand going viral and put together a thoughtful response. He said he tries to avoid the internet because it “is a volatile place.”

Deep thinker, that Klay Thompson. Though he’s putting together the worst shooting season of his career, he still has plenty of time to turn things around.
