Klay Thompson calls Cavs 'idiots' for their pettiness

The Warriors star was reminded of the digs he and his team-mates endured after falling to the Cavs in the 2016 NBA Finals, becoming the first team in history to lose after holding a 3-1 series lead.

Thompson calls the Cavs "bums" and "idiots" for all of the trash talk that ensued, and says their pettiness "gets you 1-8 in the Finals".

Asked recently about those cookies, Thompson didn't hold back.

"Oh, yeah. Ha!" Klay said, via Slater. Gets you 1-8 in the Finals.

Ahead of the Golden State Warriors first game playing the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland since LeBron James departed, The Athletic's Anthony Slater looked back at the rivalry that consisted of 30 games in four years.

Now, the record should also show that LeBron's petty actions, and the 3-1 comeback, did not come without similarly petty actions from the 2016 Warriors. "That was amusing. Look how that turned out". Well, look at what pettiness gets you. For the record, Thompson's original comments when he heard about the tombstone cookies back in 2016 were almost as entertaining.

The cookies didn't stop there.

While Wednesday night's matchup between the Warriors and Cavaliers won't have the same zest as it has in the last several years - LeBron James is gone and Draymond Green has been ruled out for the game - we'll always have the memories.
