Game 6 Klay is thrilled to face the Boston Celtics at TD Garden next Thursday

Game 6 Klay is a real thing, in case anybody was wondering what all the fuss is aboiut before Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors make atrip to TD Garden to face the Boston Celtics, and Klay Thompson couldn’t be more excited about it. When we first heard of that term, we thought it was only a little banter but the evidence paints an entirely different picture.

Even the official NBA page has a specific recount of how and when exactly was Game 6 Klay born. We would have to go to the 2016 NBA Playoffs between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Golden State Warriors. That’s exactly when the legend was born.

Game 6 Klay vs the Thunder.

On that historic evening, Klay Thompson attempted 17 three-pointers out of which he scored 11 of them. He ended the game with 41 points and effectively handed the Warriors their ticket to the 2016 NBA Finals. A historic year with that 73-win season that was only stopped by LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in the finals.

Oh, and unfortunate injuries as well. From that moment forward, Klay has developed a cult-status as a player who creates some magical momentsduring Game 6 of any Playoff series. To the point where other major NBA stars are already expecting something special from him. Trae Young offers the best example of this with his recent tweet.

Does Thompson believe in Game 6 Klay?

During a recent interview with Malika Andrews, Klay Thompson assured he wants to believe this ‘Game 6 Klay‘ hype is real. This is what he said: “Man, I wish I could do that nightly, but for me it’s hard to go out there and say I’m gonna score 40. My game’s not like that. I go with the flow and when the ball finds me, I’mma let it fly.

“I’ve heard Tiger Woods say that he visualizes every single shot he shoots on the golf course. I try to apply the same method to basketball and just envisioning my footwork and my body position, and that ball just flowing off my fingertips and hearing the swish of the net.”
