Is a popular Instagram model trying to tell us that she's dating Klay Thompson?

Well, it sure seems that way if you follow Abigail Ratchford on social media. The sexy model, who boasts nearly eight million IG followers, posted a shot of the Golden State Warriors' All-Star's dog, Rocco, in addition to basketballs on a counter top, adding the caption, "That was the best I’ve slept in a year" with an angel emoji, as reported by the Mercury News.

Although one would argue that those are clear-cut hints, Ratchford begs to differ, not claiming Thompson at all.

Instead, she offered the following statement to The New York Post.

“My manager was right that I shouldn’t put [my relationship] out there. It’s never a good business move,” Ratchford told the New York City tabloid about airing out details of her personal life. “You kind of have to pretend you’re single, just so [your fans] can have the fantasy of having a chance with you.”

So, was this Abigail's way of strongly hinting that she's dating Klay? Or could it be that she's dating Klay's older brother, Mychel Thompson, who also plays basketball, but for the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA G League?

Hmm ... here's how people are taking to the hints.

  1. Here's the Snap that led people to think that IG Model Abigail Ratchford was at Klay's house

    That's the Warriors' shooting guard's dog, Rocco.

  2. Even though Abigail didn't claim Klay, people ran with the hints and labeled it everything from a 'victory' to calling the two-time NBA champ a 'lucky man' and more

    That last tweet has us in tears.

  3. Others were a bit more skeptical but showered Klay with praises anyway

    Wow, a two-time NBA champ just got elevated to "GOAT" and "legend" status off this rumor?

  4. For what it's worth, Despite fueling her own rumors, Abigail did seemingly send out this sub tweet

    But by then, the damage was done. Sooner or later, we'll know the true answer to whether Klay Thompson is dating her.
