Speculation is running rampant in the Bay Area following an unexpected decision made by Klay Thompson. The sharpshooter of the Golden State Warriors created confusion in the NBA community by choosing to unfollow the team’s official Instagram account. Fans and analysts are discussing whether this indicates a potential separation or a different scenario altogether. Still, Draymond Green’s response indicates that Thompson may not be departing from the Warriors.

Draymond Green’s Response

In the most recent episode of his podcast, Draymond Green chuckled about the incident. I find it absolutely hilarious. It’s so funny. I understand that you all desire for someone to get their feelings hurt. That’s not it. Green expressed doubt that it would ever happen. The relaxed demeanor suggests that Thompson’s behavior might not be as grave as it seems.

Local Analyst’s Perspective

Evan Giddings, a well-known podcast host in the Bay Area, criticized Klay’s behavior as being “weak” and recommended that Warriors owner Joe Lacob remain composed. Giddings said he doesn’t believe Joe Lacob would view him differently if he were to scrub his social media. He made a case for Thompson to continue playing with the Warriors as the top choice. Giddings pointed out that if Thompson did not perform well in cities like Philadelphia, the media would be even more critical.

Giddings also pondered Thompson’s impact if he departed from the Warriors. If you leave, you won’t be the four-time champion that you are to the Warriors anymore. He mentioned that you won’t receive any leniency if you do a bad job. This indicates that Thompson’s time with the Warriors is closely tied to his success and reputation.

The Bigger Picture

The main question is if Klay Thompson will sever connections with the Bay Area. His actions on social media have sparked a lot of speculation about potential trades. A January report suggested that there was tension between Thompson and Joe Lacob after Bob Myers left. Furthermore, it was reported that Thompson turned down a $48 million, two-year contract, further adding to the sense of unpredictability.

However, there is speculation that Thompson could potentially agree to a $46 million, two-year deal during the off-season, providing fans with a glimmer of optimism. Fans are unsure due to conflicting reports and his social media activity.


The Instagram post by Klay Thompson has caused intense speculation about his future with the Golden State Warriors. Despite Draymond Green’s calm response, there is still disagreement among fans and analysts. The NBA world will keep buzzing with rumors and theories until an official announcement is made. Keep an eye out for more information to come.
