Tristan Thompson Celebrated A Massive Two Point Win Over The Nets By Flipping A Few Uppity Fans The Bird
Calling Tristan Thompson "mighty" would be a misnomer, so - in more accurately portraying him - I'd have to say it's a shame how far the mighty-lucky-to-have-formed-a-fruitful-friendship-with-LeBron James have fallen. I mean, it was mere months ago that he was confidently staking the Cavaliers' continued claim to the Eastern Conference, and now he's resorted to puffing his chest out at a handful of heckling hipsters in...Brooklyn? Of all places?
Trust me, I'm typically all for giving it to back to annoying fans that won't shut the fuck up, but the type of fans that haven't been able to celebrate so much as the selection of their own first round draft pick since before LeBron put the 'believe' back in BelieveLand? Someone whose last on-court incident was a scuffle with basketball's preeminent prick on the NBA's biggest stage should know that type of behavior is unbecoming of even the most woefully uncompetitive and entirely self-proclaimed "contender".
You want to sound crazy in trying to convince everyone that the departure of potentially the best player of all time was just a speed bump on the Cavaliers' path back to Eastern Conference supremacy (or your reality star of a baby mamma that it wasn't you caught cheating with multiple groupies in public, for that matter) then at least commit to the lie. After all, everyone loses when you stoop to the level of bickering with fans who are just trying to get their word's worth because they haven't gotten their money's worth in ages. Unfortunately for Tristan Thompson, he picked an opponent that has already grown accustomed to accepting a loss upon entry.
