WARRIORS VS. CELTICS: Watch Game 6 on ABC7 Thursday at 6 p.m. PDT

This video you're looking at is from 2017.

Fake Klay's real name is Dawson Gurley, a YouTuber, and he somehow got past security although he was wearing a full-on jersey -- something athletes generally don't wear when entering arenas.

He also was banned from Kaiser Permanente Arena in Santa Cruz, that's the home of the Warriors' G-League team.
