Klay Thompson won’t let people forget that he was left off the NBA’s 75th-Anniversary team any time soon … ’cause he showed up to the Warriors practice rocking a #77 Jackie Moon jersey!!
Remember, Klay said he was going to channel Will Ferrell‘s “Semi-Pro” character this season … saying, “We goin full Jackie Moon this year.”
While Moon sports #33, Klay repped #77, which he’s been trolled with after being left off the NBA’s 75th-anniversary team.

Thompson wasn’t pleased when the list (which had 76 players due to a tie) dropped at the beginning of the season … saying, “Maybe I’m just naïve in my ability to play basketball, but in my head, I’m TOP 75 of all time.”
Thompson has a reason to be pissed — he’s a 3-time champ, 5-time All-Star, holds the record for most points in a quarter, the most 3 pointers made in a game and is tied for most 3-pointers made in a single playoff (98) with his teammate, Stephen Curry.
Despite his beef with the list, that didn’t stop his teammates — Curry and Draymond Green — from having fun at his expense.
Steph and Dray left a #77 jersey with Thompson on the back in Klay’s locker as the Dubs prepared for practice earlier this week … and Klay, being the good sport that he is, decided to roll with the joke.
Of course, Klay’s actual number is 11 … and we’re assuming he’ll be back to his old digits when he makes his highly anticipated return to the court.
