Uman with a strong resemblance to Klay Thompson passed all the security checks of the Chase Center as if he were the player of the Warriors and snuck into the NBA finals, even making it to the playing court, where he was able to shoot and show that he also has a good hand.
Wearing a hooded Warriors sweatshirt and team track pants, the individual, with a goatee like Thompson’s, had no trouble getting into the compound, as security guards really thought it was him. When they realized the deception, they asked for his documentation and accompanied him to the exit.
The video, yes, has the appearance of being a montage, since the fake Thompson is followed by a camera from his entrance to the pavilion until his exit, passing through the corridors and the playing field. Suspicious.
