We’ll always be left to wonder just how many he could have had but Klay Thompson’s 60 point game was impressive for this fact: he did it in just 29 minutes on the court. Thompson has an autograph contract with Fanatics and on Wednesday, the company revealed a line of memorabilia with that inscription Thompson will add when he sits down with company reps for a signing session sometime in the near future.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr pulled Thompson at the end of the third quarter of a lopsided victory over Indiana.
Had he remained in the game, played the entire fourth quarter and maintained his 2.07 points per game pace, Thompson would have wound up with 84-85 points, which would have been the second best single-game scoring record of all-time. Wilt Chamberlain’s surely unbreakable record of 100 points stands alone.
While Thompson’s 60 point game didn’t set a record, his efficiency is a marvel. He’s the first player in the shot clock era (mid-1950s) to score 60 while playing fewer than 30 minutes.
Even his scoring machine teammate, Steph Curry was impressed enough to get Thompson’s autograph on his copy of the official score sheet.

Thompson will sign a limited number of 60-point memorabilia including photos and basketballs. Unsigned items commemorating the game have also been created. You can see them all by clicking here.
