A number of players were disappointed to be left off of the NBA's list of the 75 greatest players in league history this week, but few were more vocal about it than Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson. The three-time NBA champion has now posted several times on social media about it, so naturally, his teammates had to get in on the fun with a bit of trolling of their own.
Enter Draymond Green. On Saturday, he posted a video of Thompson's locker in which a No. 77 jersey hung. After a tie, 76 players were ultimately named to the top-75 list, jokingly suggesting that Thompson was the last player cut. Thompson typically wears No. 11.
This is far from the first prank ever pulled in the Golden State locker room. During the 2015-16 season, Andre Iguodala organized a massive, team-wide practical joke against Festus Ezeli in which the former Golden State big man believed he had been cut right before the playoffs were set to begin.
Thompson is currently recovering from a torn Achilles tendon. He is expected to return to the floor around Christmas. When he does, he'll have a chance to prove the voters who didn't pick him wrong, and with the Warriors looking great through a 2-0 start, he might even have another chance to do it deep into the postseason. Until then, though, he'll have to settle for making his teammates laugh through Green's hilarious joke.
