SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – In September, Warriors general manager Bob Myers told head coach Steve Kerr that Klay Thompson had to make his return home inside the Chase Center, according to KRON4’s Jason Dumas. .

Indeed, this is what will happen when the star of the Warriors sets foot on an NBA field against the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday night at the Chase Center in San Francisco in front of more than 18,000 spectators.

Chase Center Posted On Twitter a compilation of tweets from Dub Nation about fan thoughts on Thompson’s return – since his last NBA game 941 days ago on June 13, 2019.

“There won’t be a dry eye on Chase when Klay returns,” one tweet read.

It might even include the eyes of head coach Steve Kerr who said Sunday could be one of the most emotional nights of his basketball career.

The feeling is mutual between Thompson and Dub Nation.

“I love our fans to death,” Thompson said in a video to Warriors fans ahead of his return. “Just to hear the roar of Dub Nation again.” Just seeing the number 11 jerseys scattered around the crowd… I get chills when I think about it.

“I love our fans so much,” added Thompson. “They gave me so much love when I was hurt, when I was depressed.”

In the message from Chase Center, another fan said, “Klay’s return is going to be one of the most emotional nights in Warrior’s history. You can bet Chase is going to be LOUD… ”

“If you don’t lose your voice you’re not a real fan,” another fan tweeted.

Even San Francisco Mayor London Breed is ready for Thompson’s return, she says Twitter.

Since moving to the Chase Center in 2019, the Warriors haven’t made the playoffs and have had the super-electric crowd that shows up in high-intensity playoff games.

However, Sunday could change all that and become the loudest Warriors mob in the building.

The Warriors (29-9) face the Cavaliers (22-17) on Sunday at the Chase Center with a warning at 5:30 p.m.
