Stephen Curry expressed his deep appreciation for his long-time teammate Klay Thompson, who is leaving the Golden State Warriors in a heartfelt Instagram post.

Thompson has signed a three-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks, which has shaken Warrior fans who did not see this move coming.

In support of his long-time teammate and friend, Curry’s message recalled the journey and achievements the duo accomplished together, alongside Draymond Green, during their time with the team.

“Gonna miss you @klaythompson,” Curry wrote. “Even though we won’t finish the journey together, what we did will never be done again. Couldn’t have imagined a better run with you and @money23green. Changed the whole Bay Area. Changed the way the game is played. Killa Klay at the center of it all. Thank you for everything, bro. Go enjoy playing basketball and doing what you do. Splash Bros 4 life my guy.”

The message is a reflection of the strong bond and mutual respect between Curry and Thompson, known collectively as the “Splash Brothers” for their incredible shooting skills.

Their partnership has been a propellant for the Warriors’ success over Thompson’s 13-year run.

Some social media responses:

“The break-up we weren’t ready for,” One commenter wrote.

“What an era… good luck Klay.”

“If you’re a real NBA fan, this sh*t hurts,” Another wrote.
