A Los Angeles Lakers fan in Oakland recognized a Golden State Warriors player at a local Chipotle, but could not quite place his name. So she went up and asked the player, to which the man replied "Stephen Curry."

Unfortunately for the women, it was actually Klay Thompson, who it turns out is hilarious in addition to being awesome at basketball.

The ease with which Thompson fires off Curry's name makes it seem as though this is not the first confused admirer he has pulled the trick on.

It is hardly even a lie considering Thompson and Curry are essentially brothers.
