Cavs centre Tristan Thompson sucker punched Warriors' Draymond Green at LA party - report

Cleveland Cavaliers centre Tristan Thompson reportedly “sucker punched” Warriors rival Draymond Green at an ESPY’s after-party in LA last month.

Thompson and Green were involved in an on-court feud during the NBA finals in June.

Thompson, who has a daughter with Khloé Kardashian, was ejected from game one after shoving the basketball in Green’s face as the Warriors star was taunting him while he left the court.

Following the game, Green told the media he "can meet [Thompson] in the streets any day.”

That feud reportedly came to a head at restaurant in LA where LeBron James was hosting an after-party following the sports awards ceremony.

The Big Lead’s Jason McIntyre said Green was attempting to apologise to Thompson for their on-court fracas when the Cavs centre punched him.

Green’s fiery on-court demeanour has been involved in countless on-court incidents during his career including kicking Steven Adams in the groin during the 2016 Western Conference finals.
