Klay finally felt pressure from Game 6 moniker Finals series originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Alright, so it turns out that Game 6 Klay Thompson is human after all.

The Warriors superstar joined teammate Andre Iguodala and co-host Evan Turner on the latest episode of the "Point Forward" podcast, where he admitted that the famous moniker finally caught up with him and he started to feel the pressure in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics.

"I didn't think so, but I'm not gonna lie I felt it a little bit in Game 6 in the Finals," Thompson said when asked if there ever is any added pressure. "I was like 'damn I shouldn't have thrown up the six.'"

Of course, prior to Game 6 of the Finals, "Game 6 Klay" delivered in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Memphis Grizzlies, which then led to Thompson throwing up six fingers in full embrace of the nickname coming to fruition once again.

"Let's just win the game ... that's something ... I embrace it, man," Thompson added. "It's something like if you get a nickname or something like that, it's just not handed out. You gotta embrace it."

Klay certainly has embraced it and even though it doesn't have a 100 percent success rate, the legend of Game 6 Klay lives on and the Warriors hope it makes a return in a pivotal Game 6 next season as Golden State sets out to defend its title.
