In less than a week, Tristan Thompson has been going through a lot, but we have to admit that he did most of it to himself. His infidelity seems to have also affected his basketball career as well.
Since the videos and pictures showing him with various women surfaced online, Tristan got little to no playing time with his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It seems that he is starting to get tired of this and the fact that they are in the middle of the playoffs doesn’t help a bit.
Here’s what an insider who knows more about the situation told Hollywood Life online magazine:
‘Tristan is very upset that his playing time has been reduced essentially to zero minutes. He thinks he has a lot to offer a team and is considering requesting a trade at the end of the season whether LeBron [James] is in Cleveland or not.’
It looks like LeBron was not happy at all with the horrible publicity that has been surrounding Tristan for a while and he got him benched.
‘All the backlash that he has been receiving from fans, teammates, and Khloe’s family as a response to his cheating scandal have him feeling that a change of scenery is one of the best options for him,’ the source continued.
After all of this, Tristan is not expecting to play too much with the Cavs, and he might be even considering moving on, according to the same source. We have to wait and see what he decides.
