Klay Thompson heckles Christian Yelich while watching Cubs at Wrigley

Klay Thompson just wants to have fun.

The Warriors All-Star guard has been enjoying his offseason. After having surgery to repair his torn ACL and signing his five-year max contract to stay with the Dubs, Thompson has been traveling the world with his girlfriend, and he even showed off his sweet shooting stroke in San Francisco.

Thompson's latest offseason travels saw him head to the Windy City where he had front-row seats to watch the Chicago Cubs take on Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers.

As it turns out, Thompson is just like the rest of us at MLB games. 

The three-time NBA champion was seen heckling the reigning National League MVP from behind home plate, and honestly, I can relate.

Same Klay, same.

You can bet they'll be more to come from Klay's day at Wrigley Field,

Giants vs. Cubs lineups: Jeff Samardzija on mound trying to avoid sweep

The Giants will be closing out their time in the Windy City on Thursday with a matinee game as they send former Cub Jeff Samardzija to the hill.

Samardzija enters with a 9-9 record and sports a 3.54 ERA. He most recently earned a no-decision after throwing 5 1/3 innings in the Giants’ 10-9 win in Arizona on Friday night.

The Cubs will counter with Kyle Hendricks, who owns nearly identical numbers. The Chicago righty has an 8-9 record and a 3.37 ERA on the year.

Hendricks is making his regular-season debut against San Francisco, but he has faced off with the Orange and Black before. In the 2016 NLDS, Hendricks got the start in Game 2 and pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowing two runs as the Cubs won 5-2 inside the Friendly Confines.

Buster Posey is back behind the plate for the Giants after being off Wednesday and Scooter Gennett slides down to the seventh spot in the lineup after hitting second in last night’s game.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija has priceless reaction to Evan Longoria homer

Giants' Jeff Samardzija has priceless reaction to Evan Longoria homer

Giants third baseman Evan Longoria has 16 home runs on the season -- and surely each one of them is memorable to an extent. But his 16th, in particular, was significant for Jeff Samardzija. 

In the top of the first inning of Wednesday's Giants-Cubs game, Longo hit a two-run homer to left field on a 2-0 pitch from Yu Darvish to take an early lead.

And Samardzija's face was priceless:

For you master lip readers out there, it appeared Shark said a version of "Oh, baby," which is as big of a compliment as you could receive. 

Madison Bumgarner was leaning up against the fence next to Samardzija. He didn't have quite the same reaction ... perhaps he knew it was gone the moment the bat made contact.

Either way, that face is worth a thousand words. So much so, we created a screengrab of it.

You're welcome.
