Warriors’ Klay Thompson trips, runs over fan during championship parade
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson gave social media plenty of laughs on Monday before and during his team’s championship parade in the Bay Area.
Thompson had to make a slight wardrobe change when he lost his championship hat in the wind while boating before the parade. He caught the moment on Instagram Live and exclaimed, ” Oh no, I lost my hat!”
He showed up to the festivities in a captain’s hat, which was more suitable for Thompson, an avid boater.
“I lost my hat!” 😭
