A Klay Thompson The impersonator has been BANNED for life from Warriors home games … after he allegedly tricked arena staff into thinking he was Golden State’s star, allowing him access to not only the building, but also at the basketball court.
“Banned because I walked past 5 layers of security (who purposely let me through security without asking for ID) and filmed in the field for 10 minutes,” Dawson Gurley advertised on social media.
And, Daws isn’t kidding about the ban…he posted a photo of a letter from a Warriors executive laying out his punishment.
“You deliberately misled Chase Center building staff by impersonating a GSW employee,” the letter read in part.
The disciplinary letter goes on to say that Daws – who does not deny the allegation – can never return. They also threatened him with a trespassing charge.
For his part, Daws thinks the suspension is BS! He says he actually had a ticket to the game… saying it’s not his fault security didn’t stop him.
“I also spent 10,000 euros on tickets that they don’t refund. Why should I be banned because their security is incompetent?” Dawson asked his followers.
10 groups is obviously a lot of money to lose. But, the Klay impersonator says he has no regrets.
“Was it worth losing 10,000 tickets and getting banned for life? Absolutely. I was an NBA player for 10 minutes, bro.”
During these 10 minutes, Daws even had time to take a photo.
This isn’t the first time Gurley has drawn attention for being the All-Star. He pranked fans during the 2018 NBA Finals, sitting courtside dressed as Klay. This video has millions of views.
Side note: The real Klay Thompson had 21 points in Monday’s Game 5 win. The Warriors are one game away from winning an NBA title.
