Then, after the series was over, Green refused to give Thompson a customary, cordial dab on the court. Thompson seemed friendly enough, walking up to Green to say their parting goodbyes with a smile and his arm out, but as soon as Green saw the Cavs big man in his sight lines, the league’s preeminent heel uttered, “I don’t fuck with you” directly to Thompson’s face.


During the championship parade, Green doubled down, confirming that he did say something after Game 4, prefacing that confirmation by saying that “[Tristan and I] just ain’t cut the same.”

Apparently, at this most recent confrontation at the Delilah restaurant in West Hollywood, they just carried on and continued to coexist at the party with no further issues. Regardless, tempers flared—sentiments remain. I’m excited to see this beef boil over on the court next season.
