Real Klay weighs in on Fake Klay getting banned from Chase

“Oh man, poor guy,” Thompson told Bay Area News Group Warriors beat writer Madeline Kenney on Wednesday. “Just trying to get some good content.”

“You play stupid games you get rewarded stupid prizes,” he added.

Gurley, who looks like the version of Klay Thompson you’d come up with if you tried to draw his face from memory with your eyes closed, has been a fixture during the Warriors last three NBA title runs, shown up to everything from Finals games to ring ceremonies. But the 29-year-old Gurley, who mostly does hidden camera pranks that range from kind of funny to extremely cringe, likely won’t be portraying Fake Klay in San Francisco again anytime soon thanks to a confirmation from the Warriors Tuesday that the ban was in fact real.

That doesn’t, however, mean Fake Klay won’t be back. Gurley already actually has a wild number of famous suitors calling for his services, including Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley, who tweeted Wednesday “we need you on the Floor at Target Center.”

Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai also made an overture to Fake Klay to come to Brooklyn.

Gurley’s YouTube video of him sneaking into the arena past security, which was posted on Tuesday, currently has over 3 million views.
