As has been well-documented over the past few months, Tristan Thompson loves to pound women.

Almost any woman. 

He’ll just gladly take her back to his hotel room, even when his girlfriend is pregnant and staying in his Cleveland apartment, and go to sexual town on these women.

Tristan and Draymond

Tristan Thompson is a dirty, rotten, lying cheater is what we’re saying.

But we’ve also just learned that the overpaid power forward also likes to pound his fellow NBA players, just not in the same sense that he likes to give it to the aforementioned Instagram models.

According to a report in The Athletic, Thompson punched rival Draymond Green in the face at an ESPY Awards after-party just a couple weeks ago.

Marcus Thompson – a writer who spent the entire 2017-2018 season chronicling the Golden State Warriors for this website – writes that Green and Thompson were both guests at a shindig hosted by LeBron James on July 18.

At one point, Green supposedly went over to Thompson and attempted to apologize for blowing Thompson off after the Warriors completed their sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the NBA title this past June.

Tristan Thompson Gets Angry

But Tristan allegedly wasn’t having it.

Despite Green trying multiple times to make peace between the on-court foes, Thompson reportedly snapped and…

“It was a sucker punch,” said one source who attended the party to The Athletic. “But, to be honest, it wasn’t really a punch. It was more like a shove.”

Marcus Thompson writes that another witness describes Tristan’s action as a "face mush," while other reports have deemed it a "legit punch."

Either way, Green did not go down, at least one person close to the situation has Tweeted:

Toward the end of Game 1 of the Finals this summer, Green clapped his hands in the face of an angry Tristan, who responded by shoving the ball into Draymond’s face.

Said the fiety Michigan State alum shortly afterward to reporters:

“I can’t meet him outside (of an NBA game) because I’ll still get fined.

But I can meet him in the streets any day. … In the summers, you can meet anybody. But all that meet me outside, meet me at the bus, I ain’t going for that. But if he want to see me somewhere else, that’s fine. Any time.”

Thompson, allegedly, chose for that time to be at this ESPYs-related gathering, at which cell phones were not allowed, hence the lack of available footage.

The Athletic writes that LeBron and Kevin Durant quickly intervened at this party before Tristan and Draymond could really get into it, and that their beef was eventually squashed before the night even ended.

“Man, that wasn’t no fight,” one source told the site. “It was much ado about nothing.”

Neither Tristan nor Draymond has commented on this brief dust-up, but they’ll see each other on the court again next season.

Thompson, meanwhile, continues to see Khloe Kardashian, even naked, according to numerous reports.

He and his baby mama never really broke up, despite his penchant for sleeping with other people.

Khloe has made it apparent that she’s willing to give the romance another try, even claiming that Tristan is a good father to the pair’s daughter, True.

We’re not sure if we believe that.

But at least Khloe is giving her child’s father a fighting chance. Get it? Fighting?!?
