Uh oh! Is LeBron James upset that his Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Tristan Thompson is dating publicity lightning rod Khloe Kardashian? We’ve got the EXCLUSIVE truth on if he thinks the relationship is bad business for the reigning NBA champs.
“Whatever Tristan is doing with Khloe is not of any interest to LeBron. He is focused on repeating as champs and is confident that Tristan will be ready to play and contribute to the team in about a month when the season begins.” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Khloe, 32, and Tristan, 25, have been showing off their amazing new romance to the world, from sizzling vacations on the beaches of Mexico to super hot PDA at Drake‘s Sept. 9 L.A. concert. It looks like nothing is about to stop their love train at the moment, but if her high-profile lifestyle gets in the way of his play, then there might be trouble with King James!
“LeBron is not going to take any nonsense and if Tristan starts focusing on being on TV and being a celebrity while dating Khloe, then that is where the problems will come. LeBron wants everyone to be ready to repeat as champs and bring another title to Cleveland!” our insider adds.
The 31-year-old team captain probably wants to make sure that Tristan avoids the alleged “Kardashian Kurse” when it comes to basketball players. After Lamar Odom, 36, married Khloe in 2009 he had a couple of decent seasons with the Lakers before being traded to Dallas then the LA Clippers as his career flamed out. Khloe then went on to date a red-hot James Harden, 26, whose Houston Rockets then had a nosedive of a season, finishing eighth in their conference in 2016 as opposed to second place before he started seeing her.
