Tristan Thompson of the Cleveland Cavaliers has made headlines of late for his burgeoning relationship with Khloe Kardashian, and the King is not happy.
Le Bron James is reportedly pretty upset about the arrangement, per Hollywood Life.
Le Bron wants everyone to be ready to repeat as champs and bring another title to Cleveland! The 31-year-old team captain probably wants to make sure that Tristan avoids the alleged “Kardashian Kurse” when it comes to basketball players.
After Lamar Odom, 36, married Khloe in 2009 he had a couple of decent seasons with the Lakers before being traded to Dallas then the LA Clippers as his career flamed out.
James, who been vocal about wanting to challenge the greatest-ever legacy of Michael Jordan, wants to add to his three NBA titles, and the four-time MVP has taken on such a parental presence in his locker room that he has even tut-tutted teammates for being sloppy with their laundry.
From a September Hollywood Life post (by all means, take this with as many grains of salt as you desire): “Le Bron is not going to take any nonsense and if Tristan starts focusing on being on TV and being a celebrity while dating Khloe, then that is where the problems will come.
As far as he’s concerned, Khloe’s coming to every damn game she chooses.” As the defending NBA champions, not to mention a team that features the league’s biggest star in James, the Cavs have plenty of media interest to deal with as it is, without the circus that follows Kardashians everywhere.
That might not be sitting well with one of Thompson’s teammates, one Le Bron James, who could be opposed to the reality-TV superstar bringing unnecessary drama to the team.
The gossip website Hollywood Life went so far Friday as to report that James and Thompson had an argument over Kardashian before Cleveland’s season-opening game at home Tuesday.
His primary goal in life right now is to win more championships for the city of Cleveland and further his already legendary NBA career. Because the Cavs have what it takes to get back to the NBA Finals after taking down the Golden State Warriors last season — something their brand new championship bling highlights to dramatic effect.
