Reports emerging yesterday during LeBron James ESPY Afterparty is that which have been on for weeks between Tristan and Green before it happened again.
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson have a beef that carried over from Game 4 of the NBA Finals when Green offered to meet Thompson “in the streets.”
Hip-hop blog Bossip had the initial story Tuesday, reporting that Green and Thompson got into a fight at an ESPYs afterparty that was quickly broken up by LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
The Big Lead’s Jason McIntyre, who initially reported the vague rumor without naming names, opened up with his version of the story after the Bossip report.
“Draymond went up to apologize to Tristan for what happened after G4 of the finals. TT said ‘nah man’ and Draymond tried again, ‘come on, I didn’t mean it’ and then WHAP, Tristan leveled him with a punch. Draymond didn’t go down.”, tweeted Jason.
He added: “Draymond Green was not the aggressor, he was trying to make peace. Tristan felt embarrassed by the end of the Finals diss moment and just unloaded. Couple players i spoke here in LA/on social media went with, “about time”.”
Late Tuesday, The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson II reported what he had heard about a “scuffle” between Green and Thompson at James’ ESPYs afterparty.
