If you recall, the two almost came to blows in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals and Green continued to taunt Thompson in the following days.

Before Draymond Green's alleged violent confrontation with Tristan Thompson. the National Basketball Association star was partying with LeBron James and Kevin Durant and witnesses say he was in a great mood.

Although LeBron James is set to become the latest cast member for the Real Lakers of Los Angeles, he got pulled into a bit of a reunion earlier this month with one of his mates from Keeping Up With The Kavs.

According to Bossip, LeBron James and Kevin Durant broke up the fight.

At least they waited until after the ESPYs. After the Warriors completed a sweep of the Cavs, Green refused to offer Thompson the customary handshake before he left the floor.

It seems Green was trying to do the right thing, as his postgame response was a byproduct of a high following a pivotal Game 1, where he was shoved only by coming in the vicinity of Thompson, who had an issue with Shaun Livingston shooting the ball before the shot clock expired.

At Golden State's victory parade, Green explained why he didn't give Thompson any respect, saying "Tristan, we ain't cut the same".

'It was a sucker punch, ' said one source who attended the party. According to Jason McIntyre of Fox Sports Radio, Thompson felt embarrassed by what transpired at the end of the Finals and made his feelings known. "But, to be honest, it wasn't really a punch". Other reports have described it as a legit punch, maybe even a quick one-two.

McIntyre went on to say Green was not the aggressor, and the punch was a result of Tristan Thompson's built-up frustration from their feud.

The players got into a big fight earlier this month inside LA nightspot Delilah, multiple sources told BOSSIP.

Neither Green nor Thompson have commented about the incident and neither team has released a statement regarding the conduct as well.
