You Guys Gotta Show Up Too!!

Klay Thompson thinks Warriors fans have been spoiled by their historic dominance … grousing about Dub Nation’s lack of support Sunday night after an embarrassing loss to the Suns.
The Warriors — currently 1st place in the Western Conference — just lost to the 2nd-worst team in the whole NBA … and Klay’s laying some of the blame on the fans. Yes, the fans.
“I expect our crowd to be a little more into it,” Thompson said after the 115-111 loss. “I know it’s not the playoffs, but it is our last go-around at Oracle (Arena).”
“Least you could stand up when someone makes a good play, especially in the beginning. We need that energy.”
“We expect our fans to bring that from the jump.”
There’s been a lot to celebrate in Oakland lately — 3 championships in the past 4 seasons, a 73-win season, and a starting lineup full of All-Stars.
Thompson’s assuming all that success must get boring to the fans … but as the Dubs make yet another run at a title, he makes it clear he wants more.
“It doesn’t matter if we’re playing the Suns or the Bucks, whoever it is … we need that energy from them, ’cause we feed off that.”
