Programming note: Watch the NBA Finals pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders on Thursday at 4 p.m., streaming live on the MyTeams app.

Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and Toronto Raptors on Thursday night will be the final game in Oracle Arena history.

Golden State superstar Kevin Durant underwent surgery on a ruptured right Achilles tendon on Wednesday morning.

The Dubs are trailing Toronto three games to two in the best-of-seven series.

Add all of this together and we likely are in store for a very emotional night in Oakland. 

The emotions already are flowing on social media as Warriors guard Klay Thompson posted a heartfelt message about both Durant and Oracle Arena to Instagram on Thursday afternoon:

That's some powerful stuff right there.

The reigning two-time NBA Finals MVP responded by saying: "Love you bro!"

Because life isn't fair, KD won't be at Oracle as he is recovering in a New York hospital.

You better believe that the Dubs will be even more motivated when they take the floor for Game 6.
