Klay Thompson

Steph posts gut-wrenching tribute to Klay after Warriors departure

Good morning, Dub Nation. Do you have your tissues handy? It's time to be sad.

Warriors superstar Steph Curry took to Instagram Tuesday morning to pay tribute to longtime teammate and fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson, who agreed to sign a reported three-year, $50 million free-agent contract with the Dallas Mavericks on Monday.

Curry posted a heartwarming series of photos, capped off with a touching message to Thompson at the end.

So ... about those tissues.

Thompson's decision to leave the Warriors after 13 seasons likely was not easy, and Thompson reportedly requested Curry not to pressure the Warriors into re-signing him.

Now Thompson will compete against Curry and the Warriors as the newest member of the Western Conference-rival Mavericks. Still, the abundance of memories he made with Golden State and his Hall of Fame legacy will live on forever.
