Tristan Thompson 20 Points Full Highlights (5/17/2017)

The worst thing about this season, in my opinion, was that Matthew Dellavedova was not on the Cavaliers anymore to throw lobs to Tristan “Triscuits” Thompson. That was like the most consistent PG-to-big lob connection in the league since Andre Miller and JaVale McGee, and it got destroyed soon after it was formed. Dellavedova is…

Tristan Thompson 22 Points Full Highlights (2/6/2017)

Tristan “Triscuits” Thompson choked near the end of regulation, making just one of two free throws when making both of them would have obviously been better (it’s math). However, making zero of them would have been way worse, so Triscuits didn’t choke as hard as he could have. There was definitely a higher level of…

In a way, it’s Tristan Thompson’s fault that LeBron James is currently having a meltdown and telling everybody who will listen that he needs more playmakers. Not only because Tristan isn’t a playmaker himself, but because he knowingly signed a contract that paid him too much, a contract which then prevented the Cavaliers from acquiring…

Tristan Thompson 19 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (1/29/2017)

TRISTAN THOMPSON JUMPER ALERT! TRISTAN THOMPSON JUMPER ALERT! ALERT! TRISTAN THOMPSON MADE A JUMPER! There was a time, during those dark LeBron-less years, where Tristan Thompson would sometimes, just short of regularly, shoot jumpers for the Cavs. Then LeBron came and replaced Carrick Felix (check out my highlights of that dude for a real scrub-blast…

Tristan Thompson 16 Points/5 Dunks Full Highlights (12/23/2016)

You’re a Tristan Thompson fan, so I don’t need to tell you this, but I’m going to anyway: all five of Thompson’s dunks in this game sucked except for the last one which could be considered “middling”. Of course, as a fan of Tristan Thompson, you already know this. Your fandom persists, even flourishes, under…

Tonight in the latest episode of “What If with DownToBuck”, we analyze the ramifications of this scenario: Tristan Thompson and Klay Thompson switching teams for the finals. In this scenario, Tristan immediately gets relegated to the Warriors’ bench. Draymond Green isn’t going anywhere, and neither is Bogut (at least until he gets injured). He has…

Tristan Thompson 14 Points Full Highlights (6/8/2016)

People just love to talk about how bad Tristan Thompson is. Not only how bad he is, but how bad his contract is. Is it his fault that the Cavs wanted to pay him big money? No. Anyone would’ve taken that contract. So we can just forget about that supposed negative aspect of him. Fact…

Tristan Thompson 16 Points Full Highlights (2/18/2016)

I drowsily scroll through the list of individual player performances on Basketball-Reference, searching in vain for highlight-worthy statlines. There having been just three games the previous night, I know that there will not be much for me to choose from, but even I am surprised by the paucity of decently-performing role-players. The unexpected ringing of…

I don’t even know who the Cavs’ second-best player in the Finals is. It seems like it’s Tristan Thompson, but the words “Tristan Thompson is the second-best player on a Finals team” have kind of a blasphemous ring to them. Just typing them out makes me feel like Lucifer himself is going to pop out…

Tristan Thompson 24 Points Full Highlights (1/16/2015)

Tristan lay half-awake in his bed, thinking about what he would like to eat for breakfast. There were at least six different kinds of cereal in his cupboards; some Golden Grahams or Cookie Crisp would be pretty tasty. He also had ingredients for omelettes or pancakes, options that would be even tastier but also require…
