Tristan Thompson is known for making headlines for his off-court antics rather than his basketball skills.
However, during the NBA regular season break, he seems to have been on his best behavior.
As a co-parent to True and Tatum with Khloe Kardashian, Thompson appears to be making an effort to impress her. Recently, luck was on Thompson’s side as he narrowly avoided a physical altercation at Papi Steak.
TMZ reported that Thompson was dining at the popular Miami hotspot with friends when he sensed tension among them outside the restaurant.
He quickly decided to make his exit and told his companions, “I’m gonna be in the car. You guys figure it out,” as seen in a video obtained by the outlet.

Shortly after Thompson left, a brawl broke out among the other men involved, with punches being exchanged until it was broken up.
Although Thompson’s car was in the vicinity, he did not get directly involved in the drama. The reason behind the tension remains unclear, but the restaurant owner, David Grutman, was present when the fight occurred.
Recently, Thompson has been seen more frequently in public, often seen with Kim Kardashian. Despite reports that he and Khloe are not officially back together, Kim continues to support Thompson both on and off the court. Their latest adventure took place at Bad Bunny’s restaurant.
