Tristan Thompson’s aggressive tendencies have a long history
Khloe Kardashian 'knows not to push his buttons.'
We know that Kim Kardashian has learned how to manage and deal with Kanye West’s volatile temper but it looks like the reality TV star is not the only one in the family who has a relationship with someone having trouble managing their anger.
Khloe Kardashian’s man Tristan Thomson also has a past of aggression on his belt and it is now exposed by anonymous sources close to the NBA player.
His anger was usually manifesting itself the most on the court, his competitive nature getting the best of him.
According to a source, once, when he was merely a high school student, Tristan left during a game.
“Back in high school he was known for his fiery temper on the court — once he even walked out on the coach in the middle of a game.”
Long before he achieved his dream to become a big NBA-basketball star with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Thompson, was a promising junior playing on the St. Benedict’s Prep basketball team in New Jersey.
His head coach at the time, Dan Hurley, revealed in a special interview that while playing for the juniors’ team, “He was kicked off the team for public insubordination.”
After getting in a heated argument with the stubborn teenager, Hurley decided to kick Thomson off the team, explaining in the interview that “I just know that I’m not going to be his coach and that’s about it.”
According to a source, although Thomson is a lot tamer and calculated these days, when the occasion arises, the sportsman is ready to explode. “Tristan insists he’s calmed down a lot since then, but when things don’t go his way, he’s still known to throw a tantrum.”
Furthermore, the source had to mention that the basketball star’s girlfriend knows when to stay away from the angry man. “Khloe knows not to push his buttons!”
