NBA Rumors: Klay Thompson Slams 'Idiots' Cavaliers Behind 2016 Warriors' Tombstone Cookies

In 2016, the Golden State Warriors made history after finishing the 2015-16 NBA season with a 73-9 record - the most wins in a single season. They managed to reach the NBA Finals for the second consecutive year where they had a rematch against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Unfortunately, the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead and let the Cavaliers win their first NBA championship title.

After taking down the 73-9 win Warriors, LeBron James held a Halloween party where they had tombstone-designed cookies with names of Warriors superstars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson on it. Those types of mockery didn't sit well with the Warriors, especially Thompson, who said that he didn't get why his name was in a tombstone.

In a recent interview with Anthony Slater of the Athletic, Klay Thompson was asked once again about the controversial cookies and the All-Star shooting guard didn't think twice before taking a shot to the "idiots" behind the idea.

"Oh, yeah. Ha!" Thompson said.

"That was funny. Look how that turned out. Psssh. Bums. That was crazy. I forgot about that. Well, look at what pettiness gets you. Gets you 1-8 in the Finals. Idiots."

The Cavaliers entered the 2018-19 NBA season with the hope of the defending their title as Eastern Conference champions. However, without the best basketball player on the planet on their side, most people don't even expect the Cavaliers to earn a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference this season. After realizing that they don't have the capability to contend for the NBA championship title, the Cavaliers decided to focus on developing their young players and started to move some of their veterans, including J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver.
