On the eve of the Warriors’ first visit to Quicken Loans Arena in the post-LeBron era, Klay Thompson has unloaded on the erstwhile rivals of the back-to-back champs.

The gem comes from Anthony Slater of The Athletic. Here’s Klay on the always-entertaining back-and-forth between the Warriors and the Cabvs.

“There were also the petty moments, the viral social media jabs, a rivalry scripted perfectly for the modern age — Draymond’s first parade interview, LeBron’s post-title shirt, Draymond’s parade shirt response and much more, highlighted of course by that 2016 Halloween party in Cleveland that included tombstone cookies referencing the imagined deaths of Curry and Thompson.

And here’s the money quote from the usually taciturn Thompson:

“Oh, yeah. Ha!” Klay said. “That was funny. Look how that turned out. Psssh. Bums. That was crazy. I forgot about that. Well, look at what pettiness gets you. Gets you 1-8 in the Finals. Idiots.”

Damn, Klay.
