Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry mocked the failed dunk attempt of teammate Klay Thompson during a shoe promotional tour in China. Curry, during a stop at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in Chengdu, intentionally missed his dunk before falling on the floor, like what happened to his teammate when he was rim-checked during a 360-degree dunk attempt. "I had to do it," said Curry, adding "Hashtag China Klay”, referring to Thompson’s infamous failed dunk, a video of which became a hot topic on social media.

Thompson is not as well known for his dunking ability as he is known for his shooting prowess, having won the Three-Point Shootout in the NBA All-Star festivities in the past.

During his China stay, Thompson was also caught on video dancing in a Chinese club. Not to be outdone, Curry also showcased his dance moves at a club in Beijing. Thompson visited China as part of his promotional tour for Anta, Chinese brand shoes. Curry is in China to promote his Under Armour line and the Warriors. Curry and his wife Ayesha will also visit South Korea before heading home on July 28.

Thompson recently signed a huge 10-year contract extension with Anta that will pay him $80 million until 2026. On Monday, Anta revealed Thompson’s latest line of shoes, the KT3, which is expected to become the biggest Chinese line of sneakers.

Recently, it was revealed that the Indiana Pacers offered Paul George to Golden State for Thompson, but the Warriors rejected it. After that, the Pacers traded George to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. Last season, Thompson averaged 22.3 points per game last season despite playing as the third option on offense behind Curry and Kevin Durant.

Curry signs supermax deal with Warriors

Recently, Curry became the first player to sign a supermax five-year deal worth $201 million with the Warriors after leading them to their second NBA title in three years. According to Curry’s agent, Jeff Austin, his client signed a contract with no player option.

It will be a huge increase for Curry, who earned just $12 million last season in the last year of his four-year, $44 million extension he signed in 2012. The 29-year-old Curry will earn $34.7 million in the first year of his deal and $37.4 million in the second year. In the fifth and final year of his fresh contract, Curry will earn $45.8 million.
