Tristan Thompson is a member of the Chicago Bulls, but it is his previous relationship with Khloe Kardashian that has gotten him a lot of attention recently. Thompson’s association with the Kardashians is well-known, and his affairs with the woman who is the mother of his child were also extensively publicized throughout their years altogether.
Tristan Thompson has been getting more attention lately for his activities outside of basketball than for the activities he’s doing on the court. Being in a relationship with reality Television star Khloe Kardashian was both a blessing and a curse. While there could be a number of reasons for the two to be having problems now that they are no more involved, it appears that the NBA player still has a particular place in the TV star’s heart. She started discussing their current relationship and what it implies to her, particularly in terms of his care of their daughter.
Khloe Kardashian talked about Thompson in her recent podcast:
“It’s sad because, like, there are so many good sides to him as well, but no one gets to see those cause they’re all overshadowed by, like, the personal stuff that’s going on between him and I.”
She further added: “I want everyone to still have, like, a fair shot at just being happy and having a good life. So I don’t ever encourage anyone to just, like, jump on that bandwagon, but I also think people can have their own feelings and do what they want, but he’s always going to be in my life because of True, and he’s a great dad, and that’s all I really need to focus on is just his relationship with True.”
Given the continuous spotlight that Thompson and Khloe Kardashian find themselves in, it is truly inspiring to see him be a wonderful dad apart from the court. Thompson was roasted by NBA fans for some of his appearances with his team this season, particularly a poor pre-game shouting. Thompson’s basketball career could be much richer than he had right now as he still has a lot to achieve and prove on the basketball court.
