Tristian Thompson Reportedly Punched Draymond Green at ESPYs After Party

Tristian Thompson Reportedly Punched Draymond Green at ESPYs After Party

McIntyre went on to say Green was not the aggressor, and the punch was a result of Tristan Thompson's built-up frustration from their feud.

Multiple reports on Tuesday note that the two were involved in a brawl at a Los Angeles-area night club earlier in July with Thompson himself landing some blows on Green.

While Bossip was the first to report it, Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead has been tweeting details of the alleged incident. While on his way to the tunnel, the Cavs power forward had a verbal jab with Green before shoving him with a basketball in the face.

Neither Green nor Thompson have commented about the incident and neither team has released a statement regarding the conduct as well. However, Tristan Thompson allegedly "felt embarrassed" by what had happened during Game 4 and "unloaded" on Green. Following the Cavaliers succumbing to their heavily-talented counterpart in a four-game sweep, Green refused to shake Thompson's hand claiming "we aren't cut from the same cloth" when asked about the unsportsmanlike stance. Green piled on Thompson during the Warriors' parade.

At a private after-ESPYs party hosted LeBron James, Green's prophecy in June was fulfilled.

In this process, the spacecraft will survey 200,000 of the brightest stars to search for transiting exoplanets. The spacecraft is expected to explore more than 1,600 new exoplanets throughout its two-year mission.


'It was a sucker punch, ' said one source who attended the party.

Whatever it was, Green was incensed, according to the sources. "It was more like a shove".

It was a face mush, another source described it. The spotlight will be likely be lessened on the situation as the two players compete in separate conferences and it's unlikely they meet for the fifth straight time on the NBA's biggest stage with the departure of LeBron James from Northeast Ohio, but it's another storyline to add to this jam-packed offseason nevertheless.

And it was none other than their fellow teammates LeBron James and Kevin Durant then quickly stepped in to break up the fracas, we're told.

"Man, that wasn't no fight", one source said.
