After a grueling few years, the Golden State Warriors finally lifted the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy again. While people believed the Warriors’ championship era was over, the team came through with a strong roster and game. Interestingly, Klay Thompson also returned to the court after a two-year hiatus.

Thompson was injured for two seasons, which ultimately hampered the team’s performance. Naturally, after a long wait, the players and fans were equally delighted after the win. The parade, like their win, was a celebration for everyone. What caught everyone’s eye, however, was one clip featuring Klay Thompson and a tripped-over fan.
