Klay Thompson Invites Fan with Autographed Toaster to Warriors Parade

Klay Thompson Invites Fan with Autographed Toaster to Warriors Parade”

Since the moment Klay Thompson signed Ronnie Reyes's toaster, the Warriors went 31-2 and steamrolled their way to an NBA Championship.

Every team has its lucky charm. All because of a toaster.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Reyes' toaster dates back to 2013, when he received it as a Christmas gift. He then chose to start getting it autographed by Golden State players. So, Reyes took it to a David Lee autograph session and got his signature on it.

Next was Thompson, and the rest is history.

The Golden State Warriors' romped through the playoffs, going 16-1 after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 in the NBA Finals. "I'm still a bit overwhelmed by the 'fame, ' but then I realize that it's not really me that's famous". When he shared the story and some hilarious pictures on the National Basketball Association subreddit, Reyes quickly became an internet legend.

The Golden State Warriors may have gotten some weird form of good luck from a toaster that their forward Klay Thompson signed a few months ago, and they may have started a trend in the process.

Warriors social media coordinator Julie Phayer asked if he's bringing the toaster to the parade on Thursday, and he said, "Oh of course".
