Rumor: Tristan Thompson, Draymond Green brawled at ESPYs party
Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green exhibited some bad blood for one another during the NBA Finals last month. It appears the animosity took a turn for the worse a few weeks ago at an after-party following the ESPY Awards, if the rumors relayed by BOSSIP are indeed accurate.
A brawl allegedly ensued between Thompson and Green at Los Angeles club Delilah following the ESPYs on July 18. BOSSIP alleges that multiple sources have confirmed the fight, with Thompson allegedly “getting the better” of Green in the fight.
Neither player was seriously injured in the dust-up but the skirmish did cause “quite a stir among the well-heeled set at the invite-only bash.”
Interestingly, the rumors suggest none other than LeBron James and Kevin Durant were responsible for breaking up the brawl. James is said to have left the party shortly after the incident.
As noted, Green and Thompson mixed it up during the NBA Finals. The two scuffled during Game 1 of the Golden State Warriors’ ultimate sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After the Warriors dismantled the Cavs in four games, Green took a shot at Thompson as well after refusing to shake hands after Game 4.
Draymond wasn’t lying! He really didn’t shake Tristan’s hand.

“He tried to shake my hand. I said ‘Tristan, we ain’t cut the same.'”
