TMZ Sports released footage of Thompson flipping off a Nets fan who reportedly said “get out of here, you bum” after Thompson celebrated the win at the Barclays Center — something the league shortly looked into after the footage was released to the public.
Shortly after his performance, he joined the Cavs broadcast for a post-game interview and demanded “they better put some respect on my name.”
Thompson should be happy people are actually talking about him on the court, we know it’s pretty easy to KEEP up with Tristan and his crew away from the hardwood.
