One day after rumors of his cheating broke out, Tristan Thompson got back on the court to play during the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. New York Knicks game on Wednesday. According to People, the 27-year-old power forward played a total of 30 minutes but was heavily "booed" by angry Kardashian fans.
Tristan Thompson was not part of the starting lineup, so his name was not announced at the stadium as the game started. However, the crowd expressed their dismay when the basketball star entered the court to replace LeBron James toward the end of the first quarter. The boos reportedly got louder when Tristan's face was flashed on the big screen when he was called for a foul.
Despite being in Tristan's home court, Cavaliers fans gave their support to Khloe Kardashian, who is currently in Cleveland while waiting to give birth to their first child together. Some even brought posters that read "We love Khloe."
The heckling extended even on Twitter. Angry fans tweeted sarcastic jokes all throughout the game, calling Tristan a "cheater."
"Hard to play well when you're thinking about the cheating you've been doing," one fan tweeted.
"I gotta say, Tristan Thompson looks unphased by this fiasco. He still can't score and still stinks overall at basketball," wrote another.
