Klay Thompson posts ACL rehab picture with bulldog Rocco by his side

Klay Thompson posts ACL rehab picture with bulldog Rocco by his side

Warriors guard Klay Thompson loves his dog Rocco, and Rocco loves him back.

The five-time NBA All-Star and the English bulldog are inseparable:

Klay underwent surgery on his torn left ACL on July 2, and is expected to return within five to seven months.

Perhaps he'll be back sooner if Rocco has some magic healing powers?

"Thought he'd be a good dog for a young single man," Klay told Ros Gold-Onwude a couple years ago (watch the video above). "I don't feel like his father. More like homies, you know? He's my boy. He's like my good friend.

"He could either chill or be energetic. That's what I like about him. Goes with the flow. He's all-around a versatile dog."

We hope you enjoyed this hard-hitting news story.

Warriors star Steph Curry says winning third NBA MVP 'would be special'

Warriors star Steph Curry says winning third NBA MVP 'would be special'

The last player to win at least three NBA MVP awards was LeBron James when he took home the trophy for a fourth time in the 2012-13 season. 

Steph Curry is ready to add to his trophy case. The Warriors' start point guard came up short in his attempt to three-peat as a champion last season, but he has a third MVP on his mind this year.

"At the end of the day, winning an MVP would be special," Curry said Tuesday to ESPN's Rachel Nichols on "The Jump." "And it's something that -- I've experienced before and would love to experience again.

"I'd love to push the envelope and push the limits a little bit."

Curry averaged 23.8 points and 7.7 assists per game while shooting 44.3 percent from the 3-point line in his first of two MVP seasons. He's averaged more points per game in every season since, and his 27.3 points per game last season were the second-highest of his career. 

With Kevin Durant gone and Klay Thompson out for several months with a torn ACL, Curry is expected to see plenty of shots and could put up huge numbers. Curry was seen putting up shots late Monday night at the Warriors practice facility in San Francisco and seems locked in on silencing the Dubs' doubters.

"I always say, I'm playing like I'm the best player on the floor no matter what the situation is," Curry said to Nichols. "That's my mentality. It might not mean I'm taking every shot, but that's the aggressiveness that I need to play with and the confidence I need to have." 

This will be a whole different Warriors team than in past years, but it could also be the return of MVP Steph.
