Klay Thompson lookalike ‘BAN’ from Warriors games after going through security and shooting hoops on NBA court

A KLAY THOMPSON lookalike claims he was banned from future Golden State Warrior games after sneaking past security and shooting a few hoops.

Dawson Gurley allegedly tricked “five layers of security guards” into believing he was the Warriors’ star ahead of the NBA Finals game against the Boston Celtics.

Decked out in full Warriors kit and sporting Klay’s signature facial hair, Gurley is an impressive lookalike for the five-time All Star.

He was photographed on the field before the game and claimed to have spent ten minutes shooting at Chase Center.

But his fun was cut short when Gurley revealed he had received a letter from the organization – banning him from all future matches.

Gurley wrote on social media: “Banned bc [sic] I walked past 5 layers of security guards (who purposely let me through security without asking for ID) and spun around the grounds for 10 minutes.

“I also spent 10,000 euros on tickets which they don’t refund. Why should I be banned because their security is incompetent?

“Was it worth losing 10,000 tickets and getting banned for life?

“Absolutely. I was an NBA player for 10 minutes bro.”

The letter, allegedly sent by the Warriors, bars Gurley from future games and also threatens him with a trespassing charge.

It read: “On June 13, 2022, you entered through the Chase Center employee entrance prior to a GSW vs Boston Celtics NBA Finals basketball game without a valid ticket, valid credential, or Chase pre-approved authorization Center, GSW or the NBA League Office.

“You deliberately misled Chase Center building staff by impersonating a GSW employee.

“Your attendance at Chase Center without the proper credentials or authorization is in direct violation of the Chase Center, GSW and NBA League Fan Code of Conduct.

“Your actions may also be considered an act of criminal trespass, and we reserve the right to pursue any criminal charges through the San Francisco City Police Department.”

“The NBA hereby informs you that you are prohibited, indefinitely, from attending any future NBA, WNBA, G League, or 2K League games, or any concerts or events at Chase Center.”

Gurley is well known at the Warriors for his impression of Klay, who scored 21 points as Golden State led 3-2 in the seven-game series.

In 2018, he stunned fans courtside by sitting down dressed as a Warriors star during the NBA Finals.

Golden State and the Celtics meet Thursday in Game 6, with the Warriors’ win sealing the championship.
