Tristan Thompson felt embarrassed by Draymond Green’s Finals diss

During the fourth edition of Warriors versus Cavs in the NBA Finals, Draymond Green and Tristan Thompson got into a scuffle after getting tied up fighting for the ball at the end of Game 1.

Fox Sports' Jason McIntyre also revealed details of the alleged incident, claiming Draymond had gone up to Thompson to apologize about what happened after Game 4 of the 2018 NBA Finals, but TT wasn't having it. After the Warriors completed a sweep of the Cavs, Green refused to offer Thompson the customary handshake before he left the floor.

Reports from Bossip and The Big Lead, which were also picked up by other U.S. sports media outlets, said the incident happened inside LA nightspot Delilah during a private party after the ESPY Awards last July 18.

After Game 4, Thompson was rebuffed by Green when he attempted to shake his hand.

'It was a sucker punch, ' said one source who attended the party. "It was more like a shove".

Whatever it was, Green was incensed, according to the sources. Other reports have described it as a legit punch, maybe even a quick one-two. The spotlight will be likely be lessened on the situation as the two players compete in separate conferences and it's unlikely they meet for the fifth straight time on the NBA's biggest stage with the departure of LeBron James from Northeast Ohio, but it's another storyline to add to this jam-packed offseason nevertheless.

And it was none other than their fellow teammates LeBron James and Kevin Durant then quickly stepped in to break up the fracas, we're told.

According to that report, both players remained at the party without incident after that initial altercation.

The players got into a big fight earlier this month inside LA nightspot Delilah, multiple sources told BOSSIP.
