Tristan Thompson is more than just the guy who cheated on Khloe Kardashian while she was pregnant; he's also a professional basketball player. And as of Sunday afternoon, he's a world-class player again, with his name dominating Twitter.
But while many NBA fans were simply praising his performance on the court, just as many were throwing shade over his cheating scandal.
With more than 75,000 tweets in just a few hours, many skipped talking about the Kardashians altogether and rather marveled at his rejuvenated prowess in the game, comparing it to his 2016 season. Others, though, were having a blast poking fun at him cheating on Khloe while she was pregnant. There were jokes about his performance being based on side pieces in attendance, fears about child support or just being out from under the "Kardashian curse."
Thompson came out to start in Game 7 of the playoff game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, which caught many of his fans by surprise. But the coaches must have seen a fire no one else expected, because he didn't just come to play, he came to dominate the game and did so from the moment the clock started ticking. It was such an impressive performance on the court that Thompson's name instantly soared to the top of the Twitter trending list.
Whatever his motivations, Thompson enjoyed a career game at a pivotal point in his team's playoff run. Meanwhile, his fans were able to enjoy some brutal jokes at his expense. Below are some of the most hilarious, shocking and downright rude jokes we could find.
