Tristan Thompson of the Cleveland Cavaliers has made headlines of late for his burgeoning relationship with Khloe Kardashian, and the King is not happy. LeBron James is reportedly pretty upset about the arrangement, per Hollywood Life. He apparently got into it with Thompson before the team’s home opener on Wednesday night.
“LeBron James hasn’t been happy that Tristan Thompson is dating drama magnet Khloe Kardashian, and we hear that the teammates had a locker room showdown before the Cavs’ home opener game.
“Tristan isn’t taking any crap from his teammates anymore. As far as he’s concerned, Khloe’s coming to every damn game she chooses,” the insider reveals. “Tristan told LeBron straight up before last night’s game that Khloe was coming and that was that.”
Drama follows the Kardashians wherever they wander. LeBron James is all about business at this point in his career. So it’s not surprising he might bristle at one of his teammates getting involved with a drama queen. His primary goal in life right now is to win more championships for the city of Cleveland and further his already legendary NBA career.
We’ve seen locker room drama sink teams before. Chemistry is a big deal in team sports.
Hopefully James and Thompson can come to an understanding about this. Because the Cavs have what it takes to get back to the NBA Finals after taking down the Golden State Warriors last season — something their brand new championship bling highlights to dramatic effect.
