Even the best athletes in the world have off days.

A prime example: Klay Thompson getting absolutely rejected by the rim while trying to dunk in front of fans in China.

The Golden State Warriorsguard went up for what would have been an impressive 360-degree slam dunk. But instead, fans were treated to the ball bouncing off the rim and knocking Thompson to the ground. Ouch.

Thompson visits China regularly while doing promotional appearances for Anta, the Chinese-based shoe brand with which he has a signature deal.
