Klay Thompson

Charles Barkley calls Steph Curry, Klay Thompson 'Stay and Kleph'

Charles Barkley calls Steph Curry, Klay Thompson 'Stay and Kleph'

Charles Barkley needs to put some respect on Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

But first, he needs to figure out how to say their names correctly.

At halftime of the Warriors-Portland Trail Blazers game, the TNT analyst was trying to say "Steph and Klay." Instead, he said this.

It was probably just a slip of the tongue, but considering it came from Barkley, Warriors fans wouldn't be faulted for thinking this was just another slight from the zero-time NBA champion.

All throughout the Warriors' five-year NBA Finals run, Barkley routinely criticized them. He kept saying a jump-shooting team couldn't win a championship (there are so many things wrong with that statement).

Just last week, Barkley took a shot at Draymond Green, saying "Draymond don't talk as much since he's averaging that triple single."

On opening night in October, Thompson joined the TNT crew for their halftime show and Barkley told the All-Star shooting guard the Warriors wouldn't make the playoffs.

In the end, Steph and Klay will always have the last laugh over Barkley. They have three rings (and counting). He has none.

Do you know how to say "none" correctly, Chuck?

Klay Thompson, Jerry Rice among stars at 49ers-Packers NFC title game

It has been eight years since the 49ers hosted the NFC Championship Game, so the stars have turned out for the huge game Sunday at Levi's Stadium.

The sidelines were packed with local sports stars before the game between the 49ers and Green Bay Packers.

Injured Warriors star Klay Thompson, fresh off his Washington State jersey retirement, showed up with his girlfriend Laura Harrier.

Sharks stars Erik Karlsson and Timo Meier are in attendance to cheer on the "lovely 49ers."

The GOAT, Jerry Rice, is in the house, and he was so jacked up for the game that he was running routes on the field.

Rice also got a big hug from all-time home-run king Barry Bonds.

Rice also caught up with actor Rob Lowe before the game.

Bonds shared moments with The People's Tight End -- George Kittle -- and Thompson.

Two members of the last 49ers team to go to the Super Bowl, Alex Boone and Patrick Willis, saw each other and shared a big hug as well.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom made the trip from Sacramento to Santa Clara for the game.

The 49ers are hoping they can put on a show for all the local celebrities. If San Francisco can take down Green Bay, it will be interesting to see how many of these stars make the trip to Miami in two weeks.

LeBron James shouts out Klay Thompson for college jersey retirement

LeBron James shouts out Klay Thompson for college jersey retirement

It'll never get old seeing the moments when game recognizes game. Especially when part of that game belongs to LeBron James.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson had an emotional day at his alma mater when his No.1 jersey was retired by Washington State on Saturday.

King James took to social media to give his sign of respect to Klay on the honor:

When one of the best recognizes you, it means something.

Over the years, the two have tipped their caps to one another. LeBron even jokingly (maybe not) tried to recruit Klay after he scored 43 points in a game right before Klay coincidentally would become a free agent.

Klay will be a Warrior for a long time after signing a max-contract with the team, so those hopes are lost, but it's pretty obvious there are no hard feelings there.

He wasn't the only one to show love for Klay.

Steph Curry was there acting like a proud papa for his longtime teammate as he watched Klay give his speech. And, of course, no Klay event is complete without some love from former Dub Zaza Pachulia. 

Klay had a lot of support on a very important day.
