Klay Thompson ended up predicting exact outcome of NBA Finals

When the Golden State Warriors lost Game 3 of the 2022 NBA Finals to go down 2-1 in the series, shooter Klay Thompson said that moment reminded him of something.

“We’re not going to overreact,” he said. “We’ve been in this before. Getting 2015 great vibes.”

In the 2015 NBA Finals, the Warriors also lost 2-1, then won three straight games against the Cleveland Cavaliers to claim their first title of the Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green era.

By winning Game 6 on Thursday night – exactly seven years before Game 6 was due in 2015 – the Warriors proved that Thompson, who may or may not have contracted psychic powers from the berry, was prophetic.


While it’s likely that Thompson simply had a chance, it’s much more fun to believe that his frequent swims in San Francisco Bay made him a clairvoyant.

“I just think the ocean has healing properties that maybe a swimming pool doesn’t have, or a cool bath,” Thompson said after winning Game 4. “Just to be immersed in nature like that , it makes me really happy. Your whole body feels so good when you get out of that cold water. Honestly, you feel a little closer to God when you look at the beautiful sky and you’re just in the ocean.”

After Thompson said he was “getting great vibes in 2015,” ESPN personality Brian Windhorst, who holds a grudge against the Warriors for some reason, said he too had those vibes – but said the Warriors of 2022 were the 2015 Cavs and the 2022 Celtics were the 2015 Warriors.

“At those finals seven years ago, a team was tasked with a good mix of young, up-and-coming stars and role-playing veterans with a first-year coach who seemed like the perfect choice to unify and align the roster. “Written Windhorst.

“The other team had a most valuable, repeatedly incandescent player who was using all his talents to try and get his team beyond what seemed like underdog status,” he added.

It seems that ‘the most valuable player repeatedly showing all his talents’ – Curry – did indeed want his side to exceed Windhorst’s expectations.
