If you recall, the two almost came to blows in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals and Green continued to taunt Thompson in the following days.
Thompson and Green exchanged verbal jabs during the 2018 NBA Finals, but they took things to another level earlier this month when they got into a fist fight while at a nightclub for a private party after the ESPY Awards, multiple sources told Bossip. The same report had Kevin Durant and LeBron breaking up the scuffle.
At least they waited until after the ESPYs.
The Manafort trial: Opening statements begin
After the swift selection of six men and six women to the jury, focuses immediately shifted to ensuing opening statements. Former President Trump campaign chair, Paul Manafort's , trial began today - the first of the Mueller era.
When the Warriors swept the Cavaliers, Green made a point to snub Thompson in the post-series handshake line.
Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals will go down in history as the "Oh no, what the hell is JR Smith doing?" game, but the end of overtime had plenty of drama. Green ultimately shaded Thompson during the Warriors' championship parade days later. "It was more like a shove". Thompson reports that Tristan attacked Green "out of nowhere", and a source called the attack a "sucker punch", while another said it was more of a "face mush". Other reports have described it as a legit punch, maybe even a quick one-two. However, Thompson reports James and Durant were among "several National Basketball Association stars" who jumped in, so portraying the former MVPs as the only peacemakers might not be entirely accurate.
Neither Green nor Thompson have commented about the incident and neither team has released a statement regarding the conduct as well.
It's hard to fathom that the same man who was suspended for retaliating after getting walked over in Game 4 of the 2016 NBA Finals would keep from doing so against a man who throws not one, but two punches - making that description rather tough to believe. Thompson got fined $25,000 for the incident.
