"Game 6" Klay Thompson showed up big time in the NBA Finals. Scoring 28 points in two-plus quarters, the Golden State Warriors shooting guard was on fire and couldn't be beat. However, Thompson scared every occupant of Oracle Arena after he was fouled hard on a dunk attempt, and immediately clutched his knee. He would lie on the ground for a good minute or so, before he was helped toward the locker room by training staff. But what happened next was freaking awesome.

Wait a minute, that's Klay Thompson's music!

Following commercial break, Klay triumphantly returned a-la-Willis Reed in Game 7 of the 1970 NBA Finals, sending Warriors fans into a frenzy.

Thompson would attempt two free throws -- if he was unable to shoot his own freebies, he'd have been unable to return to the game by rule -- and was immediately substituted afterwards. This time, however, Thompson would jog to the locker room. The news was later handed down that he'll be out of the rest of the game.

But what we learned about this man's toughness will live on far, far beyond tonight's game.
