On Friday, Tristan Thompson’s name was trending on Twitter and pretty much everyone had the exact same thought.
“Me seeing Tristan Thompson trending thinking it has something to do with the Kardashians but then realizing it’s about him and sports,” one person said.
Another added, “Anytime Tristan Thompson is trending, I always assume it’s for something other than basketball lol.”
On June 18, though, his name actually trended through no fault of his own. This time it had to do with his job. Tristan’s name was quickly linked to trade rumors after his team, the Boston Celtics, made a big change with its roster Friday morning. There is growing sentiment that Tristan’s time in Beantown is likely to end.
For pop culture fanatics, trade rumors involving Tristan and his career are a welcome reason to trend. Still, the jokes were pretty universal and similar.
“Tristan Thompson is trending because of basketball ……wtf going on in this world,” one person said.
Another added, “I forget tristan thompson actually plays basketball when i see him trending.”
Clearly, the Internet is always willing to have a ball at Tristan’s expense.
