Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Clay Thompson ripped Memphis Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. on Thursday night while talking about the team’s latest NBA Championship.
Thompson won his fourth NBA title, topping the Boston Celtics 103-90 in Game 6 of the Golden State NBA Finals. Thompson, during his cold shooting night, still gave up 12 points in 41 minutes and was the main reason for the Warriors’ victory when he returned.

Speaking to the media after the victory, he recalled a tweet that Jackson deleted after defeating the Grizzlys Warriors again in March. The tweet read ‘Strength in Numbers’.
Golden State beat Memphis in their playoff match and Thompson certainly did not forget the tweet.

“The strength in numbers is alive and well,” Thompson said. “There’s a player in the Grizzlies who tweeted ‘strength in numbers’ after he beat us in the regular season and it hurt me a lot. I can not wait to retweet that thing. Freakin bum. I had to watch it, I was like ‘this weird clown’.
“Are you going to make fun of us? Like, you’ve never been there before, bro. We’ve been there. We know what we need. So, to be here again, hold on to it.… Twitter fingers, can you believe it?”
The journey back to Thompson Farm was particularly phenomenal.
He tore his ACL in the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, and then suffered an Achilles injury as he prepared to play again in the 2020-21 season.
