Rick Welts -- the Warriors' team president and chief operating officer -- has seen a lot of basketball over the years.
But there is one single performance that stands out above the rest.
During a radio appearance Wednesday morning on "Joe, Lo & Dibs" on 95.7 The Game, Welts was asked: "Quarantine game -- if you're stuck indoors for a full year, one TV, one game playing on a loop, 24/7, 365 -- what game is Rick Welts taking?"
The Hall of Famer provided a definitive answer:
"Let's see. Michael Jordan. Magic Johnson. Larry Bird. Actually not even a close call for me. I only have one box score framed in my office -- if I ever get to see my office again -- and that's Klay's 37-point quarter. Without a doubt -- the most amazing thing I've ever seen on a basketball court.
"I could never get tired of watching it. He was out of his mind. I'm not sure we'll ever see anything like that again. And the crowd was a big part of it because he reacted every time the crowd reacted. Our bench was insane.
"Everybody in the building knew they were seeing history being made."
In the third quarter of the Warriors' win over the Kings on Jan. 23, 2015, Klay Thompson went 13-for-13 overall, 9-for-9 from deep and 2-for-2 from the free throw line.
The moment Klay made this shot, I knew he was gonna score 34 additional points over the next 9 minutes and 40 seconds. It was very obvious pic.twitter.com/Kuw80E7GVJ— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) March 26, 2020
Hahahaha at Klay pointing at the ground like he wanted a ball screen. He was shooting that 30 footer immediately ... pic.twitter.com/HLxWht6IIn— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) March 26, 2020

Klay as he sits on the bench at the end of the 3rd quarter: “Leave me in!” 😂 😂 😂 pic.twitter.com/PMxQcuoRWY— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) March 26, 2020

Very good choice, Mr. Welts.
