Klay honors dog Rocco in latest Anta shoe release in China

Warriors

If you know anything about Klay Thompson, you know he loves his dog, Rocco.

So the following news from ESPN's Nick DePaula should come as no surprise whatsoever.

Back in early March 2020, Klay hosted a launch party at "Warriors Shop" next to Chase Center for the Anta KT5 Colorway "Rocco" edition.

And yes, the bulldog was in attendance.

Klay -- who has not played since June 13, 2019 when the Warriors lost Game 6 of the NBA Finals to the Toronto Raptors -- is expected to return at some point early in the 2021-22 season.

"We don't know exactly how ready he's going to be to play on Opening Night," Steve Kerr said last week. "But we know he'll be on the court and working towards that point.

"I literally think about the first game back at Chase for Klay Thompson, and the ovation that guy is gonna get. It's gonna be so emotional -- for everybody.

"I can't wait for that night because nobody deserves that more than Klay."

We can only hope Rocco will be there for that special occasion.
