Golden State Warriors players had a cool way of recognizing Klay Thompson’s return to action on Sunday night.

Sunday marked Thompson’s return to game action after being sidelined for more than two and a half years with a torn ACL and then a torn Achilles. To recognize that, the Warriors posted a series of photos on social media showing every Warriors player arriving for the game wearing various Thompson jerseys.

Thompson is expected to play only limited minutes in his return, but getting back on the floor is an accomplishment in itself. His return will also come as welcome news for his teammates, who have gotten off to a 29-9 start even without his assistance.

The veteran guard recently made waves with some comments he made about the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team. Clearly, Thompson’s teammates know his worth.
