June 13, 2019, will forever live in NBA history. It’s the day the Toronto Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the Finals, clinching their first NBA Championship in franchise history.
It’s also the last time Klay Thompson made a basket for the Golden State Warriors.
With 2:22 left in the third quarter, and the Warriors leading the Raptors at home, doing everything in their power to force a Game 7, Klay hit two free throws after getting fouled and landing awkwardly on a dunk attempt. They were his 29th and 30th points of the game, and he’d go down as the night’s leading scorer despite not playing another minute in that game, or any other game since.
On Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022, we’re celebrating Klay Day.
After nearly 3 years of waiting, the 3-time champ, 5-time All-Star — and Splash Brother — is ready to pick up where he left off, making his return to the court in pursuit of another NBA title. On Sunday, he’ll rejoin the Warriors and lace 'em up for the first time in 941 days, taking on Darius Garland, Jarrett Allen, Evan Mobley, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, for his Chase Center debut.
It’s going to be electric, and we’ve got something special in store to help fans celebrate this momentous occasion. Introducing the “The Return” Flash Challenge, where you can earn a Klay Thompson Metallic Silver FE Moment™ NFT, minted from this game, and capture a piece of NBA history with NBA Top Shot.
To earn a Moment from an iconic return, you’ll need to create a Showcase featuring:
- The top five players with the most 3-pointers made in the NBA games on Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022.
- One Klay Thompson Vintage Vibes or Deck the Hoops Moment.
- And three Rare/Legendary 3-Pointer Moments, from the NBA and/or WNBA.
Do you have what it takes to pay homage to an icon? Build and save your Showcase by 1pm PST on Wednesday, January 12 to add this new Klay Thompson Metallic Silver FE Moment™ to your collection.
- Create a Showcase with exactly nine (9) Moment™ collectibles.
- The nine Moments must include the five (5) players with the most 3-Pointers made in NBA games on January 9, 2021.
- The nine Moments must also include one (1) Klay Thompson Vintage Vibes or Deck the Hoops Moment.
- The nine Moments must also include three (3) Rare or Legendary 3-Pointer Wildcards from the NBA and/or WNBA.
- If any of the players don't have a Moment on NBA Top Shot at the start of the Flash Challenge then the player with the sixth most 3-Pointers made will be needed and so on.
- This challenge has three tiebreakers to limit the amount of players to a top 5. Tiebreaker #1 - Team Final Score Point Differential. Tiebreaker #2 - Player +/-. Tiebreaker #3 - Most Time Played.

- Please make sure all Moments are delisted from the Marketplace before saving your Showcase. If you delist a Moment, ensure your Showcase is still valid.

Prior to the snapshot, please verify that your Showcase still includes all eligible Moments.
