1.) Tristan is a professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The 6’9″ Canadian stud is one tall drink of water and he’s got major skills. He played one season of college basketball in Texas, before he was drafted by the Cav’s in the 2011 NBA draft as the fourth overall pick. Tristan signed a brand new 5-year, $82 million contract in 2015. The very next year, he proved his worth, helping win the championship alongside LeBron James.
2.) He comes from a family of athletically skilled boys.
Tristan has three younger brothers and his family is from Jamaica. His younger sibling, Dishawn, played high school basketball in Allen, Kentucky, and he was a “highly rated prospect” for the pros. His cousin Jemal Thompson, also became a Canadian Football League defensive tackle.
3.) The NBA star has been hanging out with Khloe Kardashian.
Tristan was spotted spending time with Koko on Sept. 2, bonding at a Beverly Hills mansion.

So, maybe a love interest could be in the cards!
4.) Tristan previously dated a super-sexy Instagram model.
The center/power forward was reportedly dating Jordy C in 2015, who boasts an impressive 220k followers on the popular social media site. The former lovebirds seemed to be very into each other at a point, taking pictures of themselves canoodling while at lavish venues. It’s hard to say why they split, but they did look cute together back in the day!
5.) Despite his busy schedule, he’s all about his loved ones.
Tristan posted an adorable picture in Aug., showing himself holding a ginormous golden basketball trophy alongside his family.
