Thompson got a bit heated and took out his anger on Devin Booker before being tossed from the game.
It was surprising to see Thompson act in such a way but tensions rise during NBA games so these things happen.
"They have 4 rings. Repeated over and over. And they do. And they do."

Following the game, Booker opened up about his relationship with Thompson, and his respect for the player.
He also mentioned something particularly interesting: Thompson’s trash talk was second-to-none when he was being ejected.
“They have 4 rings,” Booker said.
He continued, saying this was “repeated over and over. And they do. And they do.”
It’s hard to argue against that.
Thompson isn’t the first person to get a bit upset at Booker.
Because of his skills and his on-court persona, Booker has a knack for angering those he plays against.
Yes, Thompson will not be the last NBA star to get into Booker’s face so it’s good to see that young Suns star takes it so well.
As for Thompson, are we about to see an era of his career when he gets thrown out of games more often because of his outbursts?
Probably not, he just happened to have a night when he couldn’t hold back his emotions.
Thompson and the rest of the Warriors squad have the best comeback and trash talk for any team in the league.
There are few other players in the NBA who can compete with their multiple championship rings.
Booker and the rest of his team sure can’t – and that’s what makes Thompson’s comments so piercing.
