Klay Thompson embarrasses himself attempting circus dunks
When it’s all said and done, Klay Thompson will be enshrined into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.
NBA DRAFT: 2018 Big Board
Just six years into his NBA career, and the 6-7 Washington product is already a two-time champion and three-time all-star. His lengthy list of accolades also a pair of all-league selections and a 3-point contest title. But the shooting guard, who makes up half the tandem known as the Splash Brothers along with two-MVP Stephen Curry, shouldn’t ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever enter (Smokey from “Friday” voice) the slam dunk competition.
Watch him straight embarrass himself, not once, but twice attempting a 360 dunk while in overseas on a promotional tour for ANTA, the China-based sneaker brand he endorses.
Thompson, who recorded a 31.5-inch vertical leap at the 2011 NBA Draft Combine, had a career-low five made dunks in 2016-17 despite averaging 23.7 points. His 268 made 3-pointers was second in the NBA only to Curry.
Just stick to what you’re best at my boy.
