In 2018, Thompson dressed as the Will Ferrell’s character from Semi-Pro, Jackie Moon after setting the NBA record for most threes in a game. This year, the star went with his own version for Larry Bird. Recently, in a short video, Klay is seen in a full Bird get up on the court. He decided to take a more saucy approach as he dribbled up and shot a perfect three point shot.

A golden moment for the NBA family, but it also showcases his progress. Unsurprisingly, Klay still has his shooting stroke intact and it is as smooth as ever. However, a good takeaway is his court work seems to be getting better. Even in the video, the Warriors’ star is dribbling with ease and looks all geared up for his return.
