The Golden State Warriors are kicking off the 2021-21 season off against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night.
Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson, who is out for the season, sent an emotional message to the franchise’s fan base.

Thompson, 30, suffered a torn Achilles injury in November.
The former All-Star also suffered a torn ACL during Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors. That injury forced the veteran to miss the entire 2019-20 campaign.
Of course, the latest injury news devastated the Warriors’ franchise. Two-time MVP Stephen Curry even admitted to crying when he heard the awful diagnosis.
Thompson has been a huge part of the Warriors’ three title runs since 2015. He has career averages of 19.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
