Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson reportedly punched Warriors star Draymond Green during a party at a Los Angeles restaurant last month.

Now comes corroboration and reframing.

Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic:

Thompson, according to sources, out of nowhere attacked Green.

No argument. No squaring up. No taking it outside.

“It was a sucker punch,” said one source who attended the party. “But, to be honest, it wasn’t really a punch. It was more like a shove.”

It was a face mush, another source described it.

Thompson’s reporting makes clear something happened. This isn’t just gossip.

What exactly happened? Like any fight, the precise details are hard to pin down. People have their own interpretations and spin of the suddenly unfolding event.
