Warriors Pledge To Retire Klay Thompson’s No. 11 In Heartfelt Farewell


In a poignant farewell, the Golden State Warriors have announced their intention to retire Klay Thompson’s No. 11 jersey, marking the end of an era for the franchise. Thompson, a cornerstone of the Warriors’ dynasty, has been a pivotal figure in the team’s success over the past 13 years.

Thompson’s departure comes after a sign-and-trade deal with the Dallas Mavericks, bringing his illustrious tenure with the Warriors to a close. Despite some tension during contract negotiations, the Warriors ensured that Thompson’s exit was handled with the utmost respect and gratitude.


“We can’t overstate Klay Thompson’s incredible and legendary contributions with the Warriors during his 13 years with the team, highlighted by four NBA Championships, six trips to the NBA Finals, five NBA All-Star Game appearances, and several NBA records, including the most points ever scored in a quarter in NBA history (37) and the most 3-point field goals in a game (14). The amount of joy and happiness that Klay provided Warriors fans, Bay Area natives, and Dub Nation supporters all around the world has been immense and cannot be minimized. His penchant for delivering in pressurized situations on the biggest stage, including many Game 6 heroics, has helped define a career. Klay’s legacy will live on forever, and we look forward to the day we can retire his #11 jersey at Chase Center, where he will join a host of Warriors immortals, including those who helped shape this recent dynasty—himself included.”



Thompson’s legacy with the Warriors is cemented not only by his impressive statistics but also by his resilience and dedication to the game. Known for his sharpshooting and defensive prowess, Thompson has been a fan favorite and a key player in the Warriors’ championship runs.

As Thompson embarks on a new chapter with the Mavericks, the Warriors and their fans will undoubtedly cherish the memories and contributions of one of the greatest shooters in NBA history. The retirement of his jersey will serve as a lasting tribute to his impact on the franchise.
