As most fans of the team know, Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson is currently in a relationship with reality TV star Khloe Kardashian. By all accounts, it seems the two are happy together.
Last Saturday night, as the Cavs squared off against the Houston Rockets on ESPN, E! Network aired Thompson’s debut appearance on “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” The episode, which was filmed last fall, focused on Thompson’s bond with Khloe.
Early on in the episode, the Kardashian family, especially Kim, seemed interested in finding out more about Khloe’s new fling.
“So, I see pictures of Khloe with some NBA player, and even though I know not to believe everything on the Internet, Khloe and a NBA player do go hand in hand,” Kim joked to the camera early in the show.
“It’s my sister. Of course, I want to know who she’s hooking up with,” Kim continued.
In an effort to keep her sister in suspense, Khloe remained coy in her initial replies. Finally, backstage at a Kanye West concert, Khloe formally introduced Thompson to her sister for the first time. A cordial hug ensued…
“He’s a little young,” Kim said with a smile of the 26-year-old Thompson.
Thompson’s appearance was brief. However, that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of him on Keeping up with the Kardashians. Khloe has spent quite a bit of time in Cleveland since the start of her relationship with the 6-foot-10 rebounding machine, so it’s entirely likely that we see him on the show again at some point.
