Matt Barnes Says Tristan Kardashian Is Fake Tough & Not About That Life (VIDEO)

It seems Tristan Thompson is not a well liked guy throughout the league.

There seems to be a consensus around the NBA that the Cleveland Cavaliers big man is not who he portrays himself to be on the court, and for that reason, he is not well received by his peers. TMZ caught up with former NBA player Matt Barnes and he basically ripped Thompson’s character apart.

“Matt Barnes says the REAL reason people in the NBA don’t like Tristan Thompson is because he’s a fake-ass tough guy who’s all talk … no action.

Since Barnes is tight with Draymond Green — who also hates Tristan — we asked him where the animosity comes from … and Barnes didn’t mince words.

“A lot of people are tough on the court and then when you seem them off the court, they’re not as tough as they want to be,” Barnes told us.

Then, he added this shot … “People know [Tristan’s] not built like that. It’s known, period.”


Golden State Warriors big man Draymond Green touched on that fake tough guy act at the Dubs parade last week, when he stated he shunned Thompson at the end of Game 4 as he tried to shake his hand and told him he wasn’t really built like that.

The two almost came to blows at the end of game 1 when Thompson shoved a ball in Green’s face following the refs ejecting him from the game.
