“Here we go,” Woj tweeted. “After two years away, Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is set to make a return vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday.”

The basketball world’s last images of the Splash Brothers on the court together was back in June of 2019. When Klay went down with an ACL injury in the finals against Toronto. Followed by an Achilles rupture in the offseason. Now the sharpshooting wing is back where he belongs.
On the NBA hardwood.
“KLAY BACK,” said The Ringer in all-caps.

It remains to be seen what type of Klay Thompson we’ll see when he finally gets back on the court. Regardless, it’s great to see one of the greatest shooters in NBA history back on the floor.
