Watch Klay Thompson rehab from torn ACL with 'help' of bulldog Rocco

The last two summers have been dominated by "China Klay," but Klay Thompson's recovery after tearing his left ACL has given way to "Rehab Klay" this summer. 

And "Rehab Klay" is nothing without man's best friend. 

Lorne Jackson, a friend of the Warriors guard, posted video on his Instagram story Friday of Thompson rehabbing. His bulldog Rocco was in the middle of it all. 

Literally, as the dog lied down between Thompson's legs. 

After tearing his ACL in Game 6 of the Warriors' season-ending loss to the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Thompson's bulldog has been a fixture in his rehab since undergoing surgery July 2. Thompson posted a picture of Rocco hanging out with him during his rehab earlier this month.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier this month that Thompson's recovery is expected to last a "standard" five to seven months. That should mean plenty more pictures of Rocco, who has become a social-media celebrity in his own right. 

It is really the Summer Of Rocco, and we're just living in it. 

Steph Curry offers to caddie for Collin Morikawa after PGA title win

Steph Curry offers to caddie for Collin Morikawa after PGA title win

The 2020 PGA Championship from Harding Park was the first major of the season to be completed without fans, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage across the United States. 

But among the select group of people in attendance for Sunday's final round was golf aficionado and Warriors star Steph Curry.

Curry and the Warriors weren't one of the 22 NBA teams invited to the league's restart of the 2019-20 season in Orlando, as it has been a quiet offseason so far for Golden State.

Steph even joined the post-round press conference, asking the first question of Collin Morikawa, the Cal graduate who won the event by two shots. 

"If you need a caddie for the next three months, I'm available."

Curry offered to caddie for Morikawa, who despite spending his college career in Berkeley, proudly exclaimed that he's not a Warriors fan (Morikawa is a Los Angeles native).

The Warriors star recently played in the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe, finishing fourth among the celebrity-laden field.

Draymond Green laughs off NBA fining him for Devin Booker tampering

Draymond Green laughs off NBA fining him for Devin Booker tampering

Sometimes you have to laugh off losing $50,000 ... right? Well, at least if you're Draymond Green. 

That's exactly what the Warriors' star forward did Sunday on Twitter. 

Green was fined $50,000 for violating the NBA's anti-tampering rules regarding comments he made about Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker on TNT's "Inside the NBA."

"It's great to see Book playing well and Phoenix playing well, but get my man out of Phoenix," Green told hosts Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley on "Inside the NBA." "It's not good for him. It's not good for his career. Sorry, Chuck. But they gotta get Book out of Phoenix.

"I need my man somewhere he can play great basketball all the time and win because he's that type of player."

When Johnson asked if he was tampering, Green gave a one-word response.

"Maybe," Green said.

Clearly the NBA took Green's comments seriously. The same can't be said for how Green took his fine.
