Owner of Warriors toaster confirms invite to parade from Klay Thompson

The fan who infamously had Klay Thompson sign a Golden State Warriors toaster at an autograph event earlier this season has confirmed a personal invite to the team’s championship parade.

Thompson, after the Warriors closed out the Cavaliers in five games in the NBA Finals earlier this week, said that he would invite the fan to the parade. It turns out Thompson made good on the claim.

The entire “Warriors Toaster” story line became an interesting aside in March when the team went on an extended winning streak after Ronnie Reyes had Thompson autograph a Warriors-themed toaster.

All told, the team ran off 14 consecutive wins after Thompson signed the toaster and won 31 of 33 games on the way to a second NBA title in three years.

Reyes recently detailed the genesis of the now-infamous Warriors toaster craze but even he can’t believe how things have played out over the years since he received it as a Christmas gift in 2013.

And now comes confirmation Reyes will in fact be at the parade celebration Thursday, which starts in downtown Oakland Thursday morning, thanks to a personal invite from Thompson. Not a bad gig if you can get it.
