Draymond Green On Tristan Thompson Fight Rumors: "Inaccurate"

Draymond Green has finally addressed rumors that he was punched in the face by Tristan Thompson at an ESPYs after party a few weeks ago, describing the reports as “inaccurate.”

As the story goes, Green had gone up to Thompson to apologize about what happened after Game 4 of the 2018 NBA Finals, but TT wasn’t having it. After Green reportedly tried to make peace again, Thompson went ahead and punched him. The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson II says one source at the party told him, “It was a sucker punch,” adding, “But, to be honest, it wasn’t really a punch. It was more like a shove.” 

In series of instagram stories posts, Draymond disputed the claims, while also encouraging Cavs fans to go ahead and throw that parade for Thompson anyway, since “that city won’t have any for a while.” He added, “Lastly, I’m only telling y’all them facts are off because ma dukes was tired of y’all talking! I really didn’t care.”

As for the parade that Cavs fans are reportedly planning, the official event listing on Facebook reads, “Parade in Cleveland on October 13th (Tristan’s number) at 3:10 p.m. (For obvious reasons). We would all like to punch Draymond in the face, so we need to celebrate someone who (probably) did! Bring canned goods I guess. Go Cavs.”
