Klay Thompson loses his championship hat and ring
Klay Thompson has certainly kept us entertained on Monday before and during the championship parade in the Bay Area.
Hours before his team’s parade, the athlete revealed that his championship hat flew into the wind while he was driving a personal boat to the parade.
The Washington State University alum exclaimed, ‘Oh no! I lost my hat!,’ in an Instagram Story video.
During an interview with 95.7’s The Game the star said, ‘I did actually take the boat today because it was a perfect glassy day on the water. It’s funny because I lost my championship hat in the wind.’
He further explained the reason behind his sudden wardrobe change, ‘ I do not condone littering. I tried to find her, but now she’s one with the ocean, unfortunately. That’s why I have the captain’s hat on.’
The Santa Margarita Catholic High School alum was forced to wear a sailor’s cap during the championship parade after the incident.
He added, ‘Honestly, I think it was destiny because it fits the outfit perfectly.’
He further mentioned, ‘It was my second option. I’m grateful to be here, man. I’m in character. Sea captain for the day.’
Moreover, the four-time NBA champion also dropped his championship ring while high-fiving the Warriors.
Fortunately, he found it on the street.
