It doesn’t look like the feud between Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Cleveland Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson is slated to end any time soon.
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.
“The players got into a big fight earlier this month inside LA nightspot Delilah.” Bossip reported. “Both ballers were in the nightclub for a private party after the ESPY Awards July 18th, and we’re told that Thompson – dad of baby girl True with Khloe Kardashian – socked Green with a two-piece, getting the better of the NBA Champion.”
According to this other report, Green went up to apologize to Thompson about his remarks following the 2018 NBA Finals. That’s when the blows were landed. Fortunately for Green and his reputation, he did not go down.
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.

The report goes on to note that it was none other than LeBron James and Kevin Durant who broke up the fight. The two were seen hanging with Draymond earlier that day, so that stands to reason.
Following Game 1 of the Finals back in June, Green told Thompson to meet him in the streets. That’s a clear indication he wanted to take their feud to the next level.

Then, after Golden State’s four-game sweep, the former NBA Defensive Player of the Year refused to shake hands with Thompson. Green ultimately shaded Thompson during the Warriors’ championship parade days later.
“We just cut from a different cloth. It’s a lot of guys in this league, they soft, we just cut from a different cloth … After the game he tried to shake my hand, I said Tristan we ain’t cut the same.” pic.twitter.com/XYn5JHPRo5
