Golden State Warriors All-Star Klay Thompson turned to social media to give an apology on Wednesday for comments made after Sunday’s loss to the Phoenix Suns, in which Thompson said there was a lack of energy in Oracle Arena.
Thompson said in a tweet: “I love DubNation. We have the greatest fan base in sports. We feed greatly off their energy in Oracle and I meant no disrespect. #timetogotowork #roadwarriors”
Thompson’s initial comments came on Sunday when asked why the Warriors have struggled to find consistency throughout the season. Said Thompson: “I expect our crowd to be little more into it too. Like, I know it’s not the playoffs, but it is our last go-around at Oracle. Least you can stand up or something when we make a good play, especially in the beginning. We need that energy, especially this time of the year. It’s hard to conjure up energy every single night ’cause you’re looking forward to the playoffs and that run.”
