Just a few days after his teammate Lebron James stormed out of a post-game press conference, Tristan Thompson followed suit and walked out of an interview following what he deemed to be a "f--ked up" question. And no, the reporter did not ask about Khloé Kardashian or his cheating scandal. The Cleveland Cavaliers star just did not appreciate being asked if he felt "helpless" guarding his rival Steph Curry.
"No, the f--k. No? We did a good job. I mean, I’m switching on him, I’m guarding him," he responded. "I am never helpless with no guy in the NBA. F--k that. F--ed up s--t." He promptly stormed off and left the locker room. The Cavs are currently 0-2 against the Golden State Warriors, which might explain his bad mood — and why he shoved a basketball in Draymond Green's face during Game 1. However, it was recently reported that Tristan is also mentally exhausted following his cheating scandal.

"Tristan is completely emotionally and physically exhausted from the cheating allegations and of course the playoffs," a source told Us Weekly. "He is focused on the winning a championship for Cleveland." Meanwhile, Khloé is in Cleveland caring for the couple's one-month-old daughter True and still struggling to trust Tristan while he's on the road.
"Of course it’s hard for Khloé to trust Tristan when he goes out of town for games," a source told People magazine. "She knows her family is right when they warned her to not trust him. But she still wants to keep trying to have a great relationship with Tristan again."
To make matters worse, the KUWTK star can't deal with the negative reactions she's getting from fans, who don't agree with her decision to stay with her unfaithful baby daddy. "She's been in tears about fans turning against her, but she's determined to make things with Tristan work," an insider told Life & Style of the 33-year-old. "The problem is that despite the backlash, Khloé is blinded by love and determined to give things another shot with Tristan. Even most of her family has turned their backs on her."
At least Tristan will be home for the next two games of the 2018 NBA finals...
