​If you've ever wondered why Klay Thompson doesn't stray any closer to the basket than the three-point line, you're about to get your answer.


While in China ​promoting a new line of shoes, Thompson taught everyone how to prevent the Golden State Warriors from winning in the future: force the shooting guard to drive for a dunk.

Anta Sports is a sportswear company in China, so perhaps there's some amount of sabotage going on. Other endorsers include Chandler Parsons, Rajon Rondo, and Manny Pacquiao.

​​Warriors fans are simply relieved that he got up from that punishing date with the pavement. That was actually Thompson's second attempt at the 360 dunk -- the first one just resulted in the ball clattering off the rim without damaging the superstar's face.


There's now a blueprint available for beating the Warriors -- challenge Thompson to drive to the rim and ask him how the hardwood tastes after the possession.
