Draymond Green was not the aggressor, he was trying to make peace. Tristan felt embarrassed by the end of the Finals diss moment and just unloaded. Couple players i spoke here in LA/on social media went with, “about time”

Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic provided more insight into the incident:
“In what would be best told by the late great storyteller Charlie Murphy, the ‘streets’ turned out to be the swanky Delilah restaurant in West Hollywood on July 18. Both Green and Thompson were guests of LeBron for this ultra-exclusive affair—which prohibited phones and cameras. None of the attendees expected the on-the-court drama to flare back up in this setting.
“Which is why everyone was stunned when Thompson, according to sources, out of nowhere attacked Green.
“No argument. No squaring up. No taking it outside.
“‘It was a sucker punch,’ said one source who attended the party. ‘But, to be honest, it wasn’t really a punch. It was more like a shove.'”
There is one interesting element of this story that makes Tristan Thompson look like the pussy that Draymond Green believes him to be. I mean, the whole world probably believes Tristan is a pussy considering that he pretty much shares an iPhone with Khloe Kardashian now and had to publicly apologize on her Instagram.
“Draymond didn’t go down”.
“It wasn’t really a punch. It was more like a shove”.
Tristan, my guy. If you’re going to be throwing sucker punches at the club, I’m going to need some knees to buckle. If you hit someone with a closed fist who isn’t expecting to be hit with a closed fist, their body needs to smack the club floor.
You can’t be out here like slapping people in the face like you’re the guest on Jerry Springer waiting in the back while your boyfriend is out there with the girl he’s cheating on you with talking shit. If you’ve been holding onto this beef all summer long, you’re going to have to come with a hit heard ’round the world.
Come right or don’t come.
Unfortunately, we will never see these two guys compete in the NBA Finals again because LeBron James is now a Los Angeles Laker which means that the Cleveland Cavaliers will never be near the NBA playoffs again unless the next NBA legend happens to be born and raised in Ohio again.
If you’re going to sucker punch someone, you better send them to the hospital.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think this Tristan Thompson Draymond Green story just makes Tristan look like a bigger bitch. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
