All of a sudden LeBron James finds himself in the role of a cheerleader and coach, and he is guiding and screaming at Tristan Thompson.
It is being claimed that LeBron pleaded and begged Tristan before game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals to put the cheating and Khloe Kardashian scandal aside.
The King told Tristan to focus on the game after the Cleveland Cavaliers players got their butt whipped by the Boston Celtics by a score of 108-83 in game one of the NBA’s Eastern Conference finals.
A source close to the baller had this to say to Hollywood Life: “LeBron wanted to make sure Tristan was 110% focused on going to war tonight with the Celtics, so he gave his teammate a private pep talk in the locker room.”

The insider continued: “LeBron made a plea to Tristan to forget the family drama that may be lingering with Khloe or any other distractions in his personal life, and to ball hard to help the Cavs win this one game. LeBron made it clear to Tristan that this is an important time for Cleveland and his team needs him to step up huge if they want to get past the Celtics and to the NBA Finals. LeBron is putting a lot of pressure on Tristan to let go of any personal issues in his life and focus more than ever on delivering a quality game and being a solid teammate.”
Sadly, the pep talk failed because the Boston Celtics now have a 2-0 series lead after a huge win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night (107-94.)
It is not only the drama that is throwing Tristan off his game; he is starting to miss his baby girl, True.
Another source claimed: “Tristan hates being away from home so much, but he’s making the most of the time he does get to spend with True, and he adores her. Tristan would love to have at least two more children, but he’s no hurry, and neither is Khloe—she wants to get their relationship back in a healthy place before even considering having another baby.”
Commenters still believe that the Cavs will win the series.
