Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson has been out since the 2019 Finals with a torn ACL and then a ruptured Achilles tendon, so he was not on the court for last years’ Warriors campaign.

This year, however, he is on track to return at some point this season and the shooter wants to see a Warriors NBA title – and a San Francisco Giants one.

On his Instagram Live this week, Thompson shouted out the other team in the Bay and compared himself to Giants trade deadline acquisition Kris Bryant.

“I love the Kris Bryant acquisition, he’s a great player,” Thompson said. “He reminds me of myself. Tall, rangey, gun of an arm, can hit the long ball.”

The Giants have been on a tear this season. They are currently in first place with a game up on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. Since being inserted into the heart of their lineup, Bryant has been almost the exact same player he was for the Chicago Cubs.
